Police: Mom kills 2 kids, attempts suicide

TROITSKOYE, Russia, March 26 (UPI) -- A woman in southwestern Russia allegedly killed her two young children and then attempted to commit suicide, a police spokesman said.

Police in Troitskoye village said they found the bodies of the woman's 3-year-old daughter and 5-year-old son Monday.

The killings may be linked to a recent court verdict in which the woman's husband was found not guilty of sexually abusing one of her children, police said.

The RIA Novosti news agency said the 24-year-old woman, whose name had not been released, survived the suicide attempt.

A similar incident occurred in June near Moscow when Galina Ryabkova killed her two sons by throwing them off a 15th-floor balcony.

Ryabkova was later declared insane and committed to a psychiatric clinic for treatment, RIA Novosti said.
