The results mean Västmanland district court is now authorized to give Schürrer a prison sentence.
The court ordered Schürrer to undergo a psychiatric evaluation after the conclusion of her trial in late August, an indication that the court found her guilty as charged.
In its decision, Västmanland District Court wrote that "overwhelming evidence has been produced" to show that the woman "is guilty of murder and attempted murder in accordance with the charges".
The decision was unanimous, with chairman of the court Per Kjellson and a three member panel of judges all in agreement that Schürrer on March 17th bludgeoned to death a nearly four-year-old boy and his almost two-year-old sister, and attempted to kill their 23-year-old mother, Emma Jangestig.
