    NC - Jiya, 8, & Piya Patel, 4, dead in hatchet attack, mom charged, 27 Aug 2011

    How terribly sad. What could have happened to have a mother hatchet to death her two dear little girls ages 4 and 8?

    Police questioned the father of the girls while the mother was in surgery. Later she was charged with their murders.

    Too bad the mother/murderer survived the surgery.

    Woman kills child with hatchet then turns it on herself

    This happened this weekend here in Asheville. Seems strange to me that the husband was uninjured and the wife was injured trying to kill herself with a hatchet. The same hatchet that she supposedly used to kill her children. A local woman posted on this link that she has personally seen the man berate the wife and kids in his store in front of the public. Makes me wonder. Looks like she will just be in a different type of prison now. So sad. Rip sweet babies.

    Just getting the names in the thread.

    From lululove's link above:

    Naiyana Patel, 33, struck herself in the head repeatedly with the same hatchet in a failed suicide attempt and was recovering from surgery at Mission Hospital, according to a Police Department spokesman. Police were standing guard at her door.
    The attack, at 40 Shannon Drive in East Asheville, was reported by the father, Lalji Patel, in a call to 911 around 10 a.m., Lt. Wally Welch said. The couple’s two daughters, Jiya, 8 and Piya, 4, were found dead inside.
    Welch said the family had only lived in the modest house for a month or two. The parents are from India, and the children were born in the United States, he said.

    I am searching everywhere trying to find a picture of these precious children. No luck yet.

    If anyone comes across one, can you please post it. It helps me to see what these young victims of crimes look like.

    Funny how that ghost waited until the husband left the house. That woman knows that she murdered her own daughters. Now she is going to pull the "I'm insane routine" and blame it on a ghost.

    [Neighbour] Patel said Naiyana was being treated for depression after a pregnancy she did not carry to full-term, and, at some point she switched medication because the initial prescription did not seem to help.

    Lt. Welch said investigators took medication from the home that relatives say was prescribed to Naiyana after the pregnancy ended.

    "Certainly, we've had speculation that there is either an elective abortion or a miscarriage -- we're not quite sure which." Lt. Welch said, "There are larger definitions of what you consider right and wrong in her mental state and her capacity at the time of the incident.

    The search warrant said that when Naiyana Patel was interviewed by investigators said claimed that "the ghost killed her children," and that she did not want to live and did not want surgery...

    Naiyana Patel was in the hospital Tuesday afternoon, recovering from her injuries. Police said she will likely be charged with two counts of first-degree murder upon her release.

    Friends of the family said Naiyana Patel recently had a child that wasn't carried to term and had been suffering from postpartum depression.
