Australian Mother Charged Over The Death Of 8 Children In Her Home

On friday, 19th December, I shared the story of 8 siblings who were found stabbed to death at their home in Cairns, Australia in the early hours of Friday Dec. 19th? (Read it here) Well, looks like they were killed by their own mother. 37 year old Mersane Warria has been charged in the deaths of the children, 7 of them were hers, and the 8th was her niece.

The children – four girls and four boys – were aged between 2 and 14 years, Australian police said

Warria, who is in hospital where she is recovering from stab wounds, was charged with eight counts of murder in a bedside hearing at Cairns Base Hospital in the northern city of Cairnsueensland today Dec. 21st.

Police didn't say exactly how the children died but they are suspected to have been stabbed to death as several bloody knives were found in the home, while one or two were suffocated. Police say they are not looking for other suspects and the woman is yet to reveal what motivated such an attack on her own family.

Warria had her seven children for five different fathers.
