Tragedies like this one are all too common,but no matter how frequently they occur, it is difficult to understand why. A woman made the inexplicable decision to stab her own son 100 times, as the seven year old boy pleaded for his life. She also killed another child who was there because she was a witness. When you hear about something like this, it makes your stomach turn. May the children rest in peace and may the mother get the help that she needs.
Before killing her 7-year-old son to get back at her husband, Elzbieta M. Plackowska told the boy he was going to heaven and ordered him to get on his knees and pray, prosecutors say.
Then she stabbed Justin about 100 times as he pleaded for his life and said he loved her, prosecutors said as Plackowska was denied bail this morning.
Next, she turned to 5-year-old Olivia Dworakowski who she was babysitting at the Naperville townhome and who was now begging Plackowska not to hurt her. Plackowska stabbed her about 50 times because she was a witness, prosecutors said.
Both children’s throats also were slashed, prosecutors said.
Justin and Olivia had been jumping on a bed when Plackowska entered and told them to kneel, prosecutors said. “She told Justin and Olivia to get on their knees and pray. She told Justin he was going to heaven tonight,” DuPage County State’s Attorney Robert Berlin said in court.
