“These six things the Lord hates, yes, seven are an abomination to Him: a proud look, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that are swift in running to evil, a false witness who speaks lies, and one who sows discord among brethren.” Proverbs 6:16-19.

Illinois (The Gaslamp Post) – A Naperville mother went on a stabbing rampage, killing her 7-year-old son, their two dogs, and the 5-year-old neighbor girl she was babysitting.  Police say the woman killed her son because she was mad at his father, and the little girl because she was a witness.

Police say Elzbieta M. Plackowska, 40, had instructed the children to kneel down and pray this past Tuesday, and took a kitchen knife, stabbing her son at least 100 times.  Once she killed the boy, she turned the knife on the little girl from next door, who she was supposed to be babysitting.

Pure evil: Elzbieta Plackowska, 40, killed her son and the neighbor girl because she was mad at her husband.

She told her son he was “going to heaven tonight.”

Plackowska then reportedly stabbed the girl, Olivia Dworakowski at least 50 times.  Both children cried and begged for their lives as they were brutally slain.  Plackowska’s son Justin, screamed that he loved his mother, trying to get her to stop, as he was slaughtered.

The family’s two dogs were also reportedly stabbed to death, but it is unclear why.

Plackowska, an immigrant from Poland who came to the United States about 12 years ago, drove to a church reportedly still covered in blood but finding it closed, called and left a message that she had, “done something bad.”  From there she drove to a home where her oldest son was staying, and told them that she was robbed.

At about the same time, the mother of the little girl, Marta Dworakowski, had returned home from work but found Plackowska’s car gone.  She went to the home in order to retrieve her daughter but found the door locked.

She called police to report her daughter missing.

Officers arrived and forced their way into the home, and located the gruesome scene of butchered children’s bodies, in the master bedroom.

The children had stab wounds in their chests, necks, and heads, and both appeared to have had their throats slashed.  Police located the knife used and described it as having been damaged, with the tip of the blade bent.

Slaughtered as they begged for their tiny lives: Justin Plackowska, 7, left, and Olivia Dworakowski, 5, right.

Plackowska was located by police, standing outside of a friend’s house while calmly smoking a cigarette.  She gave police several different stories; ranging from a stalker who killed the kids while she was outside smoking, to trying to get the devil out of the children.

Finally she came clean with the truth; she said she killed her son because she was angry that her husband, who is reportedly an over-the-road truck driver, didn’t show her appreciation for the job she was doing as a wife and mother.  According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Plackowska was upset that her husband Artur no longer brought her flowers and gifts.  She was angry because her husband was away from home working, and that she had to work as a maid, which she felt was beneath her.

She was charged with two counts of first-degree murder and will face a mandatory sentence of natural life in prison if convicted.  It’s a shame that Illinois put a moratorium on the death penalty, when a heinous crime like this would have merited such a desert.

He husband Artur was reportedly in shock, and denied that the couple was having marital problems.  “The day before (the killings) she told me that she loves me,” said Mr. Plackowska in a phone interview with the Associated Press.

Research indicated that the couple had filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in 2009, and had gone through a foreclosure in 2007.
