A Mathews mother of two is suspected of stabbing her two children to death in their home Monday morning before wounding herself with the same knife, Lafourche Parish Sheriff Craig Webre said Monday afternoon.
Amy Hebert, 40, 118 St. Anthony St., is undergoing treatment at Ochsner St. Anne Hospital for self-inflicted knife wounds to her wrists, neck, chest and abdomen, he said.
THIS IS FOR THOSE WHO SAY WOMEN WOULD NEVER STAB THEMSELVES WHERE IT WOULD SHOW.
I haven't heard another word about this, but I've been pretty busy with school.
I think if you're feeling badly enough to stab your children to death you probably wouldn't care about your self-inflicted knife wounds showing.
Reading about this woman was like deja vu with Darlie's case. I've always been a fence sitter where Darlie is concerned. There were so many things about her case that left doubt in my mind. I'll keep y'all posted if I hear anything thing more about this Hebert /A-bear/ woman.
Just saw a news ticker that said Amy Hebert's arraignment will be held on October 19th. I'll post more if/when I see it.
"State District Judge Walter I. Lanier III read the charges as a clerk recorded the proceedings by Amy Hebert’s bed in the intensive-care unit of Ochsner St. Anne General Hospital. "
"Hebert was recently divorced, the sheriff's office said. Aside from family members saying she seemed depressed, there is no apparent motive. She is still hospitalized in an intensive care unit with self-inflicted stab wounds, deputies said. Hebert is under 24 hours guard, and her bond was set at $1 million."
"In speaking with friends and neighbors, there was absolutely no indication that Hebert was capable of such an act. All indications are that Hebert was a caring, devoted mother to her children," Webre said."
The children looked adorable and their photo is on this site: http://www.wdsu.com/news/13961454/de...subid=10100245
"According to investigators, Amy Hebert used kitchen and steak knives to kill her 7-year-old son and 9-year-old daughter."
Darlie used a kitchen knife too.
There was a picture of Hebert on this article, but it didn't show up for me, perhaps it will for someone else. I don't know if the neck wound she had would show up or be covered by the jail jumpsuit.
The arraignment hearing of a Mathews woman accused of killing her two children in August was recently delayed with the new court date being set for the morning of Oct. 19.
Amy Hebert, 40, charged with two counts of first-degree murder, is set to appear in District Judge Jerome Barbera III’s courtroom. A grand jury indicted Hebert on charges stemming from the Aug. 20 deaths of her 9-year-old daughter Camille and her 7-year-old son Braxton.
Hebert appeared in Barbera’s courtroom Friday wearing a black and white jumpsuit featuring the letters “LCIW” on the back indicating her status as an inmate at the Louisiana Correctional Institute for Women at St. Gabriel near Baton Rouge. It is currently unknown who will be appointed as Hebert’s defense lawyer.
This is still in Darlie's forum, but has nothing to do with her.
Here's an update:
In Friday's pre-trial hearing, District Attorney Camille "Cam" Morvant, II said he planned to seek the death penalty for the 40-year-old defendant, who pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity to two counts of first-degree murder. (more at link)
This is in Darlie's forum, I can't find another thread for this woman so I will post it here for those that are following this case also:

...A jury in Thibodaux has found a woman guilty of killing her two children...
...Jurors on Thursday found Hebert guilty in her children's slayings and return on Friday to decide whether she faces death or life in prison...

Sorry guys, happened to drop in...I knew Darlie way back in the day, and never believed in her guilt, but what is this other case...I must have missed it. Is there a place I can go for more info...have never heard of another case like Darlies.
You might want to review the trial transcripts, video on you tube on the forensics and the overwhelming evidence of her guilt used in the court to convict her.
Go through the threads on this site, we have "reviewed" the evidence, over and over again, the 911 call , the trial transcripts, the 16 different stories of Darlie, the physical evidence, the ever changing stories of Darlie.
When you review all of that than that will give you an idea of the evidence of her guilt and her subsequent conviction.
She is where she belongs for killing two innocent sleeping boys. They went to sleep "thinking" what am I going to do tomorrow. But tomorrow never came and they were not going to live another day.
