Mother kills kids with hammer and leaves them tucked in bed for cheating husband to find their bodies
A mother of South Africa, killed her children while her husband was spending a night with his mistress.
Talent Muchara, 26, killed her two children and then herself because her husband was cheating.
The husband, Isaac Kwangari, 28, told police that his wife called him and begged him to come home, but he refused because he was spending the night with his mistress.
When he returned home the next morning, Kwangari did not find his wife, but his two children were neatly tucked in their beds.
However, he soon found a bloody hammer. He returned to the room to check on the children. That is when he discovered that eight-month-old Dignity and Sherlyn, 4, died from multiple blows from the hammer.
He called police, who were also investigating an accident of a woman who walked in front of a speeding car about 60 meters away from the couple’s home.
Police took Kwangari to the scene, and he identified the dead woman as his wife.
A neighbor said that Kwangari cheated on his wife since she came to live with him from Zimbabwe about four years ago.
“She wanted to go back to Zimbabwe many times, but he refused to give her money to leave,” the neighbor said. “He never bothered to hide the fact that he was cheating,” the neighbor added.
Both Kwangari and his lover were detained by Ermelo police for questioning.
