Mother accused of murdering two children indicted

(WMC-TV) - A Shelby County Grand Jury indicted the mother accused of fatally stabbing her two small children Monday.

Jamina Briggs, 30, was committed to a state mental health facility pending further order of the court. She was indicted on two counts of murder in the perpetration of aggravated child abuse and neglect.

Briggs has a history of schizophrenia and other mental problems, according to family members.

In July, Briggs called police to tell them she stabbed her two sons to death. Briggs met police at the door with blood on her hands.

The oldest child had been removed from the home in 2012 and should have been living with another relative.
