LOS ANGELES -- A California mother wept on the witness stand when shown photos of the charred vehicle her ex-husband allegedly set afire with her two children inside.

Sun Ok Ma testified against Dae Kwon Yun, 56, of Los Angeles, who was ordered Tuesday to stand trial on murder charges in the April deaths of his children -- Ashley, 11, and Alexander, 10 -- the Los Angeles Times said.

Prosecutor Todd Hicks said Yun forced the children into the vehicle and planned a murder-suicide after his T-shirt factory business and marriage failed but that at the last minute, Yun fled, leaving his screaming children inside, the paper said. Yun sustained burns.

Hicks said he hasn't decided if he'll seek the death penalty.
