ATLANTA — A man and his four children are dead following a stabbing in Gwinnett County, Georgia.

When police arrived, they discovered four children all under the age of 10 dead along with a man in his 30s.

Another little girl was critically wounded.

The children’s mother, Isabelle Martinez, was taken into custody, WGCL reported.

Neighbors told WSB- TV Martinez was depressed about her father’s passing, but police still don’t know her motivations for committing such a “horrendous crime.”
