According to CBSNews.com, reported April 29, 34 year-old Tonya Vasilev, the mother of a 9-year-old boy and 3-year-old girl, stabbed her children more than 200 times each inside their suburban Chicago home. She was charged with two counts of first-degree murder, according to the report. The children were discovered by their father, Nikolai Vasilev. He found the 9-year-old in the kitchen, and the 3-year-old at the top of the stairwell. The report also shared that previously the couple had a child that died in a fire, in which Tonya left the baby in a carrier in the laundry room while she went to check on another of her children. Then she notice smoke coming from the window a short time later.

It is sad to hear about situations like this because we almost know what is going to happen. There is a strong possibly that this woman will use the insanity plea, and try to get a lower sentence. It is completely horrible to hear of two innocent kids, getting stabbed that many times, especially by their own mother. However, it is sad to say that the mother's mental capacity will be an issue to determine her guilt. Even though she did admit to the stabbing, if there is a clear presence of mental instability, she might get a lesser sentence.

Hm. 200 times? Wow.


Anyway comrade, great topic but it doesn't really spawn a debate. These types of things would be more suited to the Off Topic Discussion forum. Just a suggestion.
