A mother arrested for killing eight children in Australian city Cairns.
According to details, Australian police said Saturday they had arrested the mother of all but one of eight children who were murdered. Reports say that these eight chidren were stabbed to death. However, the police officials have not revealed the cause of death of the children.
The youngest of these eight victims was a toddler and the oldest a teenager, but police said knives were found at the house where the bodies were discovered on Friday December 19 morning. Police have confirmed four girls — aged two, 11, 12 and 14 and four boys aged five, six, eight and nine dead.
Inspector Bruno Asnicar told the media that, “The 37-year-old mother of several of the children involved in this incident has been arrested for murder overnight and is currently under police guard at the Cairns Base Hospital.”
The alleged murderer woman arrested is the mother of the seven younger dead children and the aunt of the 14-year-old girl. Reports said a woman was heard screaming in the house on Thursday night, with Brisbane’s Courier-Mail saying she had shouted: “Don’t let them take away from us. God bless us. Forgive me for what I’ll do.”
