The sad fact in which a woman would have murdered her five children after learning that her ex had a partner occurred in Germany, about a year ago, but in the last hours new details were known.
The trial of Christiane K, the woman who was suspected of having murdered her five children between 1 and 8 years old began this Monday in Germany, 10 months after the terrible event took place.
The 28-year-old woman, who has so far said she is innocent, could face life in prison.
The events occurred on September 3, 2020 when Christiane K drugged her children at breakfast and then prepared a bathroom for them with toys, where she proceeded to drown them.
So far it is not clear what motivated her to commit the murder. In fact, he has not been diagnosed with any mental illness.

The children were then wrapped in towels and laid on their beds, where they were found.
The woman threw herself that same day in front of a train at the station in the nearby city of Düsseldorf, but survived her suicide attempt.
Her eldest son, who had left for school early that morning, escaped the terrible fate of his brothers and sisters.
The young woman even claimed that a masked man had entered her apartment and killed her children. However, not the slightest evidence was found to support such a claim.
Prosecutor Heribert Kaune-Gebhardt noted that the woman had learned that her husband, from whom she had been separated for a year, had found a new partner.
That day the accused exchanged messages for several hours with her mother and her husband.
To him he wrote: “the children are where I will soon be,” the prosecutor said Monday.
