US woman stabbed son 100 times: Prosecutor
WHEATON, Illinois (AP) - A Chicago-area woman stabbed her seven-year-old son 100 times and a five-year-old girl about 50 times and slit both their throats because she was angry with her husband, prosecutors said.
A DuPage County judge on Thursday ordered 40-year-old Elzbieta Plackowska held without bond.
Prosecutor Robert Berlin said Plackowska gave investigators several stories about Tuesday's killings but eventually said she killed her son, Justin, because she was angry that her husband left her alone to care for the child.
Mr Berlin said Plackowska then killed the girl she was babysitting, Olivia Dworakowski, because the child had witnessed the attack.
