Mom accused of killing family shows freaky behavior during first appearance

Mom accused of killing family shows freaky behavior during first appearance”

She refused an attorney and even smiled at the news cameras there, giving a thumbs up.

A Loganville woman accused of stabbing her husband and four of her kids to death behaved erratically during her first appearance hearing on Friday morning.

She was charged with six felony counts of aggravated assault and 10 counts of felony murder.

When offered the choice to be appointed an attorney, Martinez said her attorneys are the people and her faith, according to her translator.

"What her motivations are for committing this horrendous crime, we still don't know", Pihera said of the suspect, according to CBS News.

A fifth child, 9-year-old Diana Romero, was also stabbed but was found alive and taken to a hospital.

Thursday, that little girl remains in serious condition, but she is recovering. "I think she was in a depression". Breaking news, severe weather, daily forecasts, entertainment news, all of the day's important events to keep you up to date wherever you are.

Martinez smiled for the cameras and also put her hands together, as in prayer, with what appeared to be blood still in her fingernails and on her hand, and a bandage on her arm.

Police said she called 911 to report the killings from the home the family shared outside Atlanta.

Martinez's preliminary hearing is scheduled for Thursday, July 20th. "They loved riding their bikes, playing tag".

She says Isabel seemed fine but was struggling with the recent death of her father in Mexico.

Federal immigration authorities said Martinez, whom they identified as Maria Isabel Garduno-Martinez, illegally entered the United States, though it is not clear when or where she crossed the US border.

She is expected to appear in court again on Thursday, July 20 at 8:30 a.m.

She is now being held at the Gwinnett County Jail, refusing legal counsel.

Two GoFundMe pages have been created, including one by Salazar and another by Hallie Romero, for the family's expenses.

Pedro Ramirez, a neighbor, told CNN sister network HLN that Martinez used to be a positive person, but her behavior changed when her father died recently.
