Prosecutors: Brockton mom fatally stabbed children in 'ritual' killing

"A awful thing happened in this apartment", District Attorney Timothy Cruz said across the street from the house a couple hours after the murders were reported, according to The Enterprise.

Latarsha Sanders, 43, told police she attacked her 8-year-old son, Edson "Marlon" Brito, with a kitchen knife as part of a ritual but failed, so she attacked her 5-year-old son, Lason Brito, assistant Plymouth District Attorney Jessica Kenny told a judge during Sanders' arraignment on murder charges.

The children's bodies were found in a Brockton apartment Monday. Her older child may have been at work at the time of the slayings, he said.

The Globe reports Sanders told investigators the deaths were part of "voodoo stuff" but Cruz told reporters it was unclear if she was motivated by religious beliefs or some type of ritual.

'Suffice it to say, it's something she referred to throughout her life to other people in her family, or at least for the last couple of years.

Earlier today, Brockton officials are searching for anyone connected to the three-family home at 247 Prospect St. where the two boys were found dead this afternoon, reportedly stabbed to death.

Sanders allegedly cleaned up the children and mopped up the crime scene. But these victims were innocent children.

Sanders' next door neighbour Vin Lalli said he saw her sitting on the back steps of the building around noon.

"This was a gruesome, disturbing and heartbreaking crime", Cruz said.

Cruz said their mother "made statements that can be construed as admissions to this crime to the investigators".

Prosecutors say she has a third child who is safe.

"The ambulance driver put her on the stretcher and all of a sudden she started screaming and kicking around", Lalli said.
