'Gruesome, disturbing:' Mom due in court in sons' stabbing deaths

'Gruesome, disturbing:' Mom due in court in sons' stabbing deaths”

Earlier Monday, the mayor's office contacted members of the Brockton City Council confirming the stabbing deaths of two children.

Cruz said the brothers, aged 5 and 8, could have been dead as long at two days in the Prospect Street apartment where they were believed to have lived with their mother.

Officials in MA say two young children were found stabbed to death in an apartment on Monday afternoon, CBS Boston reports.

There is a "relationship" between the two children, but Cruz declined to specify if the children are siblings. "This was a gruesome, disturbing and heartbreaking crime", Cruz said.

Cruz said during a press conference Monday afternoon that the 43-year-old mother, Latarsha Sanders, is in police custody and is facing two counts of murder.

"All crime scenes are grizzly, but these were two innocent children".

Police don't believe the public is in danger, but neighbors say they are shaken and frightened by the horrifying news. A 911 call from a neighbor led investigators to the third-floor apartment in Brockton, city officials say.

"The motive is undeveloped at this time and the investigation has yet to fully unfold", Cruz said.

Neighbors told Boston 25 News that Sanders has at least one other child, but that child may not have been home when the brothers were killed.

"It's just sad", a woman said. "Two kids. They can't fight. How could someone like just stab two kids?"
