Woman charged with killing kids

ATLANTA (AP) — A woman charged with killing four of her young children and their father is due in court this morning, one day after police say she stabbed the five to death and seriously injured another child at a home outside Atlanta.

Authorities in Georgia charged 33-year-old Isabel Martinez on Thursday with five counts of malice murder, five counts of murder and six counts of aggravated assault, hours after police said she called 911 to report the killings from the home the family shared.

A fifth child, a 9-year-old girl, survived but remained hospitalized with injuries described by police as serious.
