Julie Lambotte Arrested – The authorities have arrested a mother of three who allegedly stabbed two of her children and drowned the third child in a bath tub in Hantes-Wiheries, in the Hainaut province in southern Belgium, on the border with France, last week Tuesday.
She’s been identified as Julie Lambotte, who claimed she carried out the act because she could not cope with having aborted a fetus that had Down Syndrome, whom she claimed to miss.
Lambotte allegedly drowned her 1-year-10-month-old baby Orphee in the bath tub, stabbed her 7-year-old daughter Ceres to death and stabbed her 9-year-old son Thibald who is currently in a critical state in the hospital.
The mother of three has been charged with murder and attempted murder and is set to be assessed by psychiatrists.
Currently, she is in the infirmary in the prison of Bruges, says the authorities.
Since when the crime occurred last week Tuesday, she is just been interviewed for the first time.
