Mother Drove 4 Kids Into Lake To Kill Them
A mom has pleaded guilty to intentionally trying to kill her children by driving them into a lake.
Akon Guode, a 37-year-old mother of seven, killed her 1-year-old and 4-year-old twins in 2015. A 6-year-old child was also in the car but survived after being pulled out of the water in time.
The mother originally said she was innocent and told a key witness that she was under a witch’s spell. She believed that the wife of her lover and children’s father cast the spell.
Monday, Guode plead guilty to infanticide, two counts of murder, and one count of attempted murder.
A witness told the court that Guode said she would rather kill herself and her children than have them live with her lover and his wife.
