@ThoromoMedia said:

"Mental illness must have contributed to this tragedy. The stress of life in general, being in a foreign country away from family and friends. Built up anxiety must have thrown her over the edge."

"A normal person doesn't just wake up and decide they are going to kill their children. There are underlying factors behind such heinous act. That, fortunately, the court will consider, not with emotional response as you do."
