A Brockton mother killed two of her sons in a “ritualistic incident,” prosecutors said in court Tuesday. Latarsha Sanders was arraigned on two accounts of murder after her two young boys were found dead in a Prospect Street apartment. Police said the 43-year-old acted alone when she stabbed her five-year-old and eight-year-old sons multiple times.
The eight-year-old boy was stabbed as many as 50 times, said, prosecutors. According to court documents, family members told investigators that Sanders had practiced Voodoo. The District Attorney did not confirm that the deaths were Voodoo related.
