Re­venge stab­bing

Woman’s Day (Australia) - - Real Life -

Elz­bi­eta Plack­owska, 45, was car­ing for her seven-year-old son Justin and a friend’s five-year-old daugh­ter, Olivia, in a Chicago, US, condo in 2012, when the kids re­fused to set­tle down for bed. In a frus­trated frenzy, she grabbed a kitchen knife, told them they were “go­ing to heaven” and stabbed them to death. While be­ing in­ter­ro­gated, she was adamant some­one had bro­ken in and killed the chil­dren while she was out hav­ing a cig­a­rette. How­ever, she fi­nally ad­mit­ted she mur­dered her son to get re­venge on her hus­band and she killed Olivia be­cause she had wit­nessed the mur­der. Plack­owska pleaded in­san­ity, but the judge sen­tenced her to life be­hind bars for mur­der.
