Georgia mother accused of slaying her family makes weird first court appearance

09 July 2017

Another child, 9-year-old Diana Romero, was transported to Children's Healthcare of Atlanta in serious but stable condition.

"For me, the hope and the attorneys are always going to be the people and my faith". US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) spokesman Bryan Cox has said that Martinez is a Mexican who illegally entered the US at an unspecified date. Police officers and firefighters responded and found Martin Romero and four children deceased, plus the injured Diana Romero, all suffering from apparent stab wounds.

A woman who was charged with killing four of her young children and her husband appeared in court, offering a odd spectacle of smiles and thumbs-up signs.

When Thorpe informed her of her right to have an attorney, she said through a Spanish-language interpreter that she doesn't want one. The neighbor also said Martinez had recently started complaining of "seeing things".

Martinez has been charged with multiple counts of murder and was not granted bond.

"She seemed so normal, like a regular mother", said neighbor Letty Perez.

"My attorney is the people that we're fighting for", she said. According to a 2014 study by Brown University, it occurs about 500 times a year in the U.S. Data show that 72 percent of the children killed were age 6 or younger, with mothers about as likely to commit such crimes as fathers. Martinez had called 911 at 4:47 a.m. requesting help.

"I'm representing the people that's humble, that's hardworking, the people that suffer, the people that have a lot of charges so that they understand that everything is possible through God", she said. She seriously injured another child at her home near Atlanta.
