An American woman whose two sons and daughter were found dead in Edinburgh has been charged with their murder.


Strange story here..anyone over in that area want to fill us in on this one?

Sounds like she had a good life, what would make her snap and do something as hideous as this?

""Theresa Riggi, 46, is in hospital after falling from the balcony of the property where twins Austin and Luke, eight, and Cecilia, five, were found.

They were discovered on Wednesday afternoon after reports of a gas explosion at the Slateford Road flat.

Police confirmed a 46-year-old woman had been charged with murder.

California-born Mrs Riggi, who had moved to the Scottish capital from Aberdeen with her children in July, is reported to be in a serious but stable condition at Edinburgh Royal Infirmary.""

The couple moved to the UK in 1997, living in Corton, near Lowestoft on the Suffolk/Norfolk border, and in Zevenhuizen in the Netherlands.

They were married in Mrs Riggi's hometown of Bakersfield, California, in September 1989, but the relationship had deteriorated in recent years.

This may offer some clues:

The youngsters were at the centre of a custody battle involving their US-born parents. Mrs Riggi failed to appear before a divorce hearing at the Court of Session in Edinburgh on Tuesday. It was the second time the family had gone missing in the past month.
