(Newser) – A chilling case out of Illinois: A woman fatally stabbed a 5-year-old girl she was babysitting and her own son, age 7 or 8, reports the Chicago Tribune. Elzbieta Plackowska told police that demonic voices in her head commanded her to save the kids' souls from the devil by stabbing them numerous times to death Tuesday night. Two dogs were also found stabbed to death in the home. Afterward, she drove to a church to try and find help, then showed up at her adult son's home, covered in blood. It's a haunting reflection of the recent murder in NYC. Plackowska is in police custody and has been charged with two counts of first-degree murder. She's scheduled to appear in bond court today.

-This murderess bitch! She should be tortured to death! Bring back the death penalty! Lynch her! -What she is white! -Forget everything I just said. She was obviously suffering from debilitating depression and possibly schizophrenic. Yes this white women was sick and deserves compassion unlike that Spanish speaking monster that killed those beautiful white children in Manhattan.

I wish they'd update this story. There were no 'voices' she did it because she was angry with her husband. The 'voices' story was one of several she told police before she told them the truth.

Elzbieta? Well, at least she's just attractive enough to get a good big butch to protect her in prison...
