Mother who murdered children receives life sentence

11-05-2012

A court has handed down a life sentence to a woman who murdered her four children in an East Bohemian village last year. The 37-year-old has testified that she remembers only fragments of her life, but not her children or her attack on them. Experts told the court that she did not suffer from any mental illness and was only feigning a loss of memory. The ruling is only the third life sentence imposed on a woman since the fall of communism in 1989.
