Mother stabs 3 kids to death then stabs herself but survives

A nursing mother has been arrested after she stabbed her three kids to death. The 28-year-old mother from Basud in Camarines Norte, Philippines, hacked her children, ages 5, 1 year/8 months old, and 4 months old, to death at their home.

The mother also tried to commit suicide but survived it. She is still confined to a hospital after the attempted suicide. Police said that “the mother admitted to the crime thinking she was infected with the deadly Covid-19.”

Three counts of parricide were filed by the Philippine National Police against the mother.
