Wuppertal (dpa) - The mother, who is said to have killed five of her six children in Solingen, has been charged with fivefold murder.

The indictment had been received by the court, said a spokesman for the Wuppertal regional court on Monday upon request.

The court will now examine them and decide on their admission.

According to the results of the investigation, the 27-year-old at the time of the crime is said to have first sedated and then suffocated her children with a non-prescription anti-nausea drug.

The public prosecutor sees this as insidious.


The five dead children were discovered on September 3 last year.

Her mother threw herself in front of a train after the crime in Düsseldorf Central Station, but survived seriously injured.

Police officers discovered the five dead children Melina (1), Leonie (2), Sophie (3), Timo (6) and Luca (8) in their apartment in Solingen.

In the meantime, the woman had claimed that a stranger had broken into her apartment and killed her children.

According to the prosecutor, no traces or starting points were discovered for this version.

There is nothing to suggest that it could have been so.
