Suicidal mother killed two little kids because she was pissed off at their father
Lisette Bamenga was a soccer-loving mom and terrific teacher, a cop’s girlfriend and a quiet neighbor — until she killed her two helpless kids.
Bamenga forced her five-year-old son and four-month-old daughter to drink toxic windshield wiper fluid. She used plastic and tape to seal up their apartment windows, and turned on the gas from her stove, police sources said.
Then she slashed her wrists and sat alone in their apartment.
According to a source, Bamenga — in a message left near the two tiny bodies in the kitchen — wrote that the children “were going to a better place” after their deaths. The note indicated that the woman planned to kill herself.
Bamenga survived and was charged with two counts of first degree murder. The murders were allegedly retaliation against the children's father for having an affair.
