Mother stabbed 2 children to death in “ritual incident” (Cbsnews)

A woman has been charged with stabbing two of her children to death in their Massachusetts home in what prosecutors have called a “ritual incident,” the Boston Globe reports. At her arraignment Tuesday, prosecutors said a boy was stabbed as many as 50 times.

Local police say that Sanders acted alone when she stabbed her 5-year-old son and 8-year-old son multiple times at some point over the weekend, a crime officials have called “gruesome, disturbing and heartbreaking.”

The boys’ bodies were discovered in their Brockton apartment on Monday after Sanders asked a neighbor to call 911 because she was having a medical issue. When authorities arrived, the neighbor told police that there were children in the apartment, so they checked and discovered them. Read more
