American woman stabs two sons to death in Voodoo ritual

A Massachusetts woman used a kitchen knife to stab two of her children to death and later told police it was part of a Voodoo ritual.

43-year old Latarsha Sanders has been charged with stabbing two of her children multiple times to death in their Massachusetts home in a ritual rite.

She 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.

She told police it had to do with “Voodoo stuff,” according to a police report of their interview with her.

The older boy was stabbed 50 times, and she admitted to the killings, Kenny said.

“She said she had stabbed him because she had ‘failed’ in the ritual with Marlon,” Kenny said, according to The Boston Herald . “She responded to police that she felt bad about what she had done.”

Sanders also told investigators she mopped up blood from the floor, left the kitchen knife in the sink, cleaned up both boys and placed them in separate beds, Kenny said.

Family members disclosed to investigators that the woman practiced voodoo.

A next-door neighbour called 911 due to Sanders telling the neighbour she had a medical problem.
Authorities discovered the children’s bodies in their Brockton apartment on Monday.

The two boys were found in the house with multiple injuries.

Lason’s body was reportedly found beneath a blanket with a white bandage on his neck, and Edson Brito body was found in another room with a lot of stab wound’s.

“We believe, based upon her comments, that she was involved in some sort of rituals that she believed in,” Plymouth District Attorney Timothy J. Cruz told reporters outside the courtroom

Sanders was taken away in an ambulance, according to a neighbour.

Sanders pleaded not guilty to two counts of murder on Tuesday. She was ordered held without bail.

The killings come a week after two sisters in the neighboring community of East Bridgewater were charged with tying down, burning and permanently disfiguring a 5-year-old girl, and threatening to cut off the head of her 8-year-old brother, in a Voodoo ritual.
