Matthew Coleman, 40, has been charged with the murder of his two-year-old son and his 10-month-old daughter.
"By law, the charges are eligible for the death penalty. The Attorney General will decide whether to seek the death penalty at a later date."
Coleman told FBI agents that he took his son, two, and ten-month-old daughter to Rosarito, Mexico, and shot them with a "spear-fishing gun" in the chests, according to an affidavit filed by the FBI.
The dad, of Santa Barbara, told authorities that "he believed his children were going to grow into monsters so he had to kill them," the court document said.
After being detained at a border checkpoint, Coleman told an FBI agent that "he was enlightened by QAnon and Illuminati conspiracy theories and was receiving visions and signs revealing that his wife, A.C., possessed serpent DNA and passed it on to his children," the affidavit said.
"It was clear to him of the consequences he could face for the actions he was taking."
According to the affidavit, Coleman admitted that he knew killing his kids was wrong, but it was "the only course of action that would save the world."
