The woman who was brought in by police authorities in connection to the fatal stabbing of her four children has officially been charged, reports claim
The mother was taken in for questioning shortly after the bodies of the four victims were found by deputies on June 1, around 1 p.m.
Though no official statement has been released regarding the identity of the victims, or their ages, Shelby County sheriff's office representative Earle Farrell referred to the children as "babies"
"This is an egregious act of evil that has shocked us to our core," Sheriff Bill Oldham addressed on Friday. "I will never understand how anyone can do this."
Since Friday, the victims' mother has officially been charged four counts of first degree murder in regards with both aggravated child abuse and aggravated child neglect, as well as four counts each of aggravated child abuse and aggravated child neglect or endangerment.
Whether the mother suffered from mental health issues still remains to be determined.
