Mother accused of murdering her husband and 4 children in horror massacre

A WOMAN has been charged with five counts of murder after she allegedly stabbed her husband and four of their five children to death in a horror massacre inside their home in the U.S. state of Atlanta.

Isabel Martinexz, 33, is accused of stabbing her husband and their five children in a frenzied attack inside their Georgia home sometime on Wednesday night or early Thursday morning.

Her husband, 33-year-old Martin Romero, and four of their five children, aged 10, 7, 4 and 2, died at the scene. The fifth child, a 9-year-old girl, survived the massacre and remains in a serious but stable condition in hospital.


Martinexz was arrested at the house after she called 911 and reported the killings at 4:47am on Thursday.

She appeared in court a day after her arrest, charged with five counts of murder and six counts of aggravated assault.

The 33-year-old was filmed smiling and giving news cameras the thumbs-up while sitting in the dock.
