The father who killed his two children indicted and imprisoned

The macabre discovery dates back to Thursday evening. Two children were then found dead in a field in Essonne. Their father was indicted and placed in pre-trial detention for assassinations, the Evry prosecutor’s office said on Sunday.

“The autopsy established that the cause of the children’s death was the result of the blows with the kitchen knife found at the scene of the events”, a field in Forges-les-Bains, the prosecution said in a press release.

The investigations, entrusted to the Palaiseau research brigade as well as to the research section of the Paris gendarmerie, “are now continuing under the authority of the investigating magistrate to determine precisely the circumstances of the commission of these criminal acts” , added this same source.

Placed in police custody during the night from Thursday to Friday, the man, who lives in Yvelines, admitted to having killed his two children on the evening of Thursday. “If he had difficulty explaining the reasons for his action, it appeared that the relations within the couple were conflictual in a context of separation,” public prosecutor Grégoire Dulin indicated on Friday.

The mother filed a complaint

The mother of the two children had filed a complaint against her partner Thursday afternoon for domestic violence committed between December 2023 and early February 2024, according to the prosecution.

Emergency services intervened on Thursday evening shortly before midnight “for an accident involving a single vehicle”, indicates the prosecution in its press release. Taken in by emergency services, the driver then told a caregiver that he wanted to commit suicide by crashing his car into a tree after killing his two children and abandoning their bodies.
