Mother Charged With Slashing Her Children's Throats Due To Excessive Crying
Mother Says She Slashed the Throats of Her Three Children to Stop Them from Crying
Christina Booth from Olympia, WA, is being held on million dollar bail with three counts of attempted murder after stabbing her three young children.
According to the Daily Mail, Christina says her husband, Special Forces soldier Thomas Booth, doesn't help with the children and gets irritated when they make noise. When their six-month-old twins and two-year-old daughter started crying Sunday night, the mother slit their throats in an attempt to silence them.
"My babies won't calm down," Christina said in her 911 call to police after stabbing them. Later, her husband came on the phone and explained that the babies were bleeding and needed an ambulance.
During her interview with authorities, detectives wrote: "Christina said she knew if she killed all of the kids, the house would be quiet for Thomas." The mother is on medication for postpartum depression.
The couple had inconsistent statements in their interviews, but it's expected that Thomas will not have any charges brought against him.
All the children are now in protective custody, and in stable condition at a local hospital.
