A woman from Loganville, Georgia, has pleaded guilty to killing her husband and four children.
Isabel Martinez, 35, entered guilty pleas to five counts of murder, one count of aggravated assault and one count of cruelty to children Tuesday. She called 911 on July 6th, 2017, and when police arrived at the residence, they found the five dead and one child stabbed, along with Martinez with her wrist’s slashed.
Martinez called 911 at 4:47 a.m. and first responders found her with a cut wrist, sitting among the six stabbing victims, according to Gwinnett County police. She was detained and charged that afternoon, and has been held without bond at the Gwinnett County Detention Center since.
The surviving children told authorities that Martinez began stabbing the children first, and when her husband tried to stop her, she stabbed him as well.
She has been sentenced to five life sentences without the possibility of parole plus 21 years after entering her plea.
