    Canada - Renu, 2, & Movlika Elango, 3 mos, drowned, 2 March 2006 *Insanity*

    An Ontario mother has been charged with first-degree murder after she was found in the bathtub of her Markham, Ont. home with the bodies of her two daughters, her own wrists and throat bleeding.

    Thirty-year-old Sivananthi Elango is in serious condition and under police guard in hospital while autopsies are underway on two-year-old Renu and three-month-old Movlika.

    "The evidence before us right now is enough to support a first-degree murder charge," York police Insp. Tony Cusimano told reporters on Friday.

    "In first-degree (murder) there has to be supporting evidence that there is a plan and deliberation."

    A male tenant, who is unrelated to the family, called emergency services at around 7 p.m. on Thursday. Elango's parents were also home at the time, but police wouldn't say where they were at the time of the murders.

    The father of the girls was out running errands and returned home to find emergency crews on the scene, police said.

    The children were pronounced dead on arrival at a local hospital Thursday night.

    Awww....this is so sad. Murder/attempted suicide. So very sad. I hate it when mothers go through postpartum and don't seek help.

    "I find that the accused committed the acts," Justice Michael Brown ruled this afternoon in Newmarket court in the second-degree murder trial of Sivananthi Elango, 33.

    "But... she is not criminally responsible on account of mental disorder," the judge said.
