Michigan Mother Kills Children

There is a tragic story to report out of Macomb, Michigan after a mother was arrested last night when she allegedly stabbed her two daughters, three small dogs and a pet mouse to death.

The girls’ ages five and eight were found lying next to one another in their mobile home.

Police say they recovered four large kitchen knives from the home and 30-year-old Jennifer Kukla suffered a self-inflicted, minor stab wound to her arm.

Officers responding to the location were left shaken by what they saw and the neighbors found the stabbings hard to believe

Neighbor, Melissa Clair, "It's terrible, it's tragic. I can't even imagine doing that to my own kids."

"It’s a very graphic situation and very sad. Obviously the officers over there were taken aback by it," says Sheriff Mark Hackel of Macomb Township.

Investigators have not determined a motive in the murders but police say Kukla was hearing voices.
