Police arrested a Georgia woman after her husband and four children were found stabbed to death inside their home on Thursday morning.
Gwinnett County police entered the home on Emory Lane, they found all five victims dead and a fifth child in critical condition. The child was taken to the hospital and treated for serious injuries, reported WSB-TV.
Their mother, Isabelle Martinez, has been charged with five counts of murder.
No motive has been announced, but neighbors believe Martinez was depressed over her father’s death and may have acted in response to her depression.
“She said her dad passed away months ago, she was in depression and we go to her house and pray sometimes for her dad,” neighbor Letty Perez told WSB-TV.
The bodies and have sent them to the Gwinnett Medical Examiner’s officer to have autopsies.
Mental illness and depression is nothing to play around with.
