Elzbieta Plackowska, 40, was indicted on five counts of first-degree murder for the alleged stabbing deaths of her 7-year-old son Justin Plackowska and five counts of first-degree murder for the death of 5-year-old Olivia Dworakowski, according to a DuPage County State's Attorney press release.

The indictment, which was filed Thursday afternoon, also alleges two counts of aggravated cruelty for allegedly stabbing to death two family dogs, a mixed breed, Niki, and a dachshund named Tootsie, according to the release.

Both children were found stabbed to death on the night of Oct. 30 when Plackowska was babysitting them inside a townhouse in the 800 block of Quin Court in Naperville, prosecutors said.

Plackowska is scheduled to be arraigned on the charges on Nov. 21 at 8:30 a.m. in front of Judge Robert Kleeman. If convicted, she faces a mandatory sentence of natural life in prison without the possibility of parole, according to the release.

Why, the 1st thing my mind asks? Look at her eyes. In my opinion, no expression. The same evil glare as 'The Joker's' - movie massacure. I heard John Wayne Gacy wanted his brain studied. These killers must have similar neurological cells within their brains. Research should be granted to various scientists, forensic pathologists, neurologists,etc. perhaps a common denominator, if found, to end these inhumane acts of behavior. Maybe studies are going on now - it appears every week these murders are happening all over as if its expected!!! I pray to God for it to stop!!!!!
