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.”
Basud Police thinks that the suspect could be suffering Postpartum Depression.
