Single mother sentenced for death penalty in Taiwan after killing her 2 young children

A single mother from New Taipei was sentenced by the court for death penalty for murdering her two young children.

The 30-year-old single mother, surnamed Wu, drugged her 8-year-old son and 6-year-old daughter ny giving sleeping pills, then strangled them to death. 

The New Taipei District Court on Wednesday ruled that as the defendant had not shown any remorse for her "abominable and inhumane acts," it was sentencing her to death for homicide, reported Central News Agency.

Wu confessed:

"I have been raising them (on my own) for seven years, and today I took them away because I feel that I have been looked down upon over the past seven years. I am alone in the face of all the public pressure and all kinds of strange stares, including the difficulty of finding a job. I wonder why I have had to care for these children on my own these past seven years. When they are sick and uncomfortable, I have to care for them on my own. I have to take care of them 24 hours a day. I have no freedom of my own."

The judges deemed that Wu's actions were "Extremely cruel, cold-blooded, extremely bad, and seriously distorted the basic values of human existence."

The court concluded that Wu had committed an unforgivable crime and that it was only natural that the death penalty be imposed.
