S. Sudanese mother whose car plunged into a lake in April charged with murder of her three children in Australia
The mother of three children who died after a car ploughed into a Melbourne lake has been charged with their murders.
One-year-old Bol, his four-year-old sister Anger and her twin brother Maudit, died after the car crashed into Lake Gladman on April 8.
Their five-year-old sister, Awel, and their mother, Akon Guot, survived.
Police said Guot, a 36-year-old from Wyndham Vale, was charged with three counts of murder and one count of attempted murder in an out-of-sessions court hearing on Monday.
She has been remanded in custody to appear at the Melbourne Magistrates Court on Tuesday.
The South Sudan-born mother-of-seven clutched her chest and was experiencing chest pain during police questioning yesterday, News Corp reported.
With the help of an interpreter, she told police she had stayed out of trouble since her arriving in Australia in 2008.
A funeral took place for the children in late April.
