Judge: Test bloodstains for DNA in child deaths
NAPERVILLE – A judge has ruled that DNA tests can be done on bloodstains in connection with the case of a suburban Chicago woman accused of stabbing to death her young son and a girl she was babysitting.
According to reports, the bloodstains were in the home where the children were stabbed Oct. 30.
Prosecutors allege 40-year-old Elzbieta Plackowska stabbed her 7-year-old son more than 100 times because she was angry with her husband. They say she then stabbed the 5-year-old girl about 50 times because she was a witness.
Plackowska’s defense didn’t object to the judge’s Friday order.
