Fairfield Mother To Stand Trial In Murder Of Twin Daughters

FAIRFIELD (CBS/AP) — A Fairfield mother was to stand trial on charges that she murdered her 3-year-old twin girls.

A Solano County judge on Monday ordered that Monica McCarrick be held for trial on charges of murder, child abuse and arson. McCarrick wept in the courtroom as her preliminary hearing concluded.

Authorities say McCarrick stabbed the girls multiple times before attempting to take her own life and set fire to her apartment. Fire and police officials responding to the Oct. 12 blaze found the bodies of the girls, Tori and Lily Ball.

McCarrick has pleaded not guilty to all the charges. She was scheduled to be arraigned again on April 1.

      I don’t, I hope she lives a long and boring and meaningless life and thinks about the looks her kids gave her as she killed them, and relives the sounds, smells and the whole thing, that she is claiming she’s not guilty of, killer her would be way too easy on her.

    INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY! THERE SURE SEEM TO BE ALOT OF JUDGES HERE. WE HAVE A JUDICIAL SYSTEM FOR A REASON. NARROW MINDED PEOPLE JUMP TO CONCLUSIONS WITHOUT ALL THE FACTS. YOU’RE WELCOME TO YOUR OPINIONS, BUT INTELLIGENT ONES CONSIDER ALL THE FACTS
