An infanticide took place Tuesday at the rue du Jeu de Balle in Hantes-Wihéries (Erquelinnes). According to the bourgmestre, two children were killed by the mother. A third child is in critical condition. “The mother is also in critical condition”. The latter is said to have ingested drugs in an attempt to kill herself.
According to the bourgmestre, the mother no longer worked and poorly supported the confinement. The latter was also forced to terminate a pregnancy. “She never went out and her children did not go back to school. But nothing suggested that. She was fused with her children, especially with the latter. ”
In the neighborhood, the emotion is strong. “She was not well but she loved her children so much. I can’t believe it, my legs are cut, “said a neighbor.
