Moore, of East Haven, appeared in court to enter a plea of not guilty in response to the double murder charges.
The chief medical examiner's office said 7-year-old Daaron Moore and his 6-year-old sister Aleisha Moore died from acute intoxication of diphenhydramine, which is an Antihistamine found in medications like Benadryl.
Police said Moore reportedly left a note behind, saying the children would be better off in heaven.
Judge Patrick Clifford asked Moore a series of questions to ensure she fully understood how the case would move forward.
“Is that correct that you're waiving your right to have a probable-cause hearing today,” Clifford asked.
“Yes, your honor,” Moore responded.
A probable-cause hearing would have determined whether there is enough evidence to move forward with the prosecution.
Instead, the case will continue with pre-trial proceedings.
If convicted, Moored could be sentenced to life in prison.
The case is expected to continue on Dec. 21.
