A grisly double homicide has shocked the town of Brockton. Two brothers were found stabbed to death inside an apartment complex. The authorities believe that the author of this fiendish murder is the children’s mother, a 43-year-old murder brought to the hospital before the murder was discovered.
Brockton Children Laid Dead in Apartment for at Least Two Days
According to the official police report, the events that led to the discovery of Latarsha L. Sanders’ double-homicide started to unfold on Monday afternoon. Vincent Lalli, a tenant of the three-story family complex where Sanders was living, recalls being at home and hearing a woman screaming from inside the building.
Lalli went to see who was screaming and discovered a terrified woman begging him to call the ambulance as something gruesome happened on the third floor. The Fire Department was first to show up at the apartment complex and together with the Brockton Police Department entered the apartment indicated by the woman.
Upon entering the house, they were greeted by a most disturbing scene – laying on the floor, were the bodies of two children, ages 5 and 8. According to the officers who investigated the scene of the crime, both infants had multiple stab wounds.
The Brockton children were rushed to the hospital where they were pronounced dead later that day. Prior to transporting the infants to the hospital, the paramedics rushed their mother to the same medical facility.
Following the discovery, the 43-year-old woman was placed under arrest and later charged with two counts of first-degree murder. At the moment, the authorities refused to disclose additional information regarding the case, expecting the coroner’s report.
The woman reportedly admitted to fatally stabbing her children but offered no motive. Some of the family’s neighbors set up a small memorial in front of the woman’s house and brought stuffed toys.
