Wuppertal / Solingen – On the day when Christiane K. (28) killed five of her six children in Solingen, her ex wrote to her that he would start a new beginning with another woman. A few hours later the children were dead, the mother threw herself in front of a train and survived.

The children (1, 2, 3, 6 and 8) were accused of being drowned and suffocated by their own mother. They were lying in bed with damp hair, blankets, towels or stuffed animals next to them. Drug intoxication was found in all children. It cannot be determined whether they were already unconscious from the medication when they were suffocated or drowned.
