According to the official declaration of police officers in Connecticut, an East Haven mom stabbed her children to send them to heaven. The woman was brought to court on Wednesday afternoon and was charged with a $2 million bail.
Police officers responded to a 911 call on Tuesday night after neighbors complained of strange noises coming from the woman’s house. When police officers got to the house, they have found the woman as she was trying to commit suicide and her two children lying lifeless on the floor.
LeRoya Moore, 36-year-old, was arrested for criminal behavior. Further investigations have revealed that the suspect killed her children during a momentarily seizure. Police authorities will continue to look into the death cause of the two children as they were unable to determine the means by which they were killed.
According to Moore’s declaration in court, the female stabbed the two kids. Medical investigators, however, could not find any bodily marks suggesting physical aggression or knife stabs.
When the woman was asked to tell the episode using her own words, she confessed to the judge that she had stabbed the two kids because she wanted to release them and to send them to heaven. She has further stated that she first took the children for a walk and offered them all the products that they loved more.
Moore told the judge that she felt she had to kill her children in order to help them get to heaven. In her opinion, the prayer that she uttered as she killed the kids helped their souls elevate to a higher state. Moreover, the woman accompanied her murder with a confession note saying why she decided to take the children’s life.
Authorities will spend the following period investigating the murder case to determine whether the woman was mentally sane or not at the time of the killing. For the moment, Moore received a $2 million bail and she will remain in jail until the investigation is over. She is currently on suicide watch as psychiatrists think the woman might attempt to take her life as well.
