  • Family members tell 11 Alive that this is the Romero family

Police have have charged the children's mother, Isabel Martinez, with numerous counts, including murder and malice murder. She used a knife, according to the criminal arrest warrant.

Diana underwent surgery and is expected to remain in the hospital for up to three weeks, according to a GoFundMe page set up for the family.

Their slain father was Martin Romero, 33, Pihera said.

The bodies of 2-year-old Axel Romero, 4-year-old Dillan Romero, 7-year-old Dacota Romero, 10-year-old Isabela Martinez and their father, 33-year-old Martin Romero, were found stabbed to death inside of a Loganville home early Thursday morning. Deon Washington said Thursday that Martinez is the "primary suspect", adding that investigators are "not searching for anyone else".

Police say she is assisting with investigations but there is still no clear motive. But, the Times tried to bury the hold, slipping it into one statement reading "She was also being held for Immigration and Customs Enforcement, officials said".

A family member declined PEOPLE's request for comment.

Martinez also rejected a court-appointed attorney, despite qualifying for one, CNN reported.

But filicide, the killing of one's own child, isn't that uncommon. The murders occurred in a mobile home in Gwinnett County, Georgia.

Police weren't saying Thursday what motivated Martinez to allegedly commit such heinous acts.

Other cases get less attention, as when a woman kills a newborn or in children's deaths blamed on neglect, said Cheryl Meyer, co-author of two books on mothers who have killed children based on about 1,000 cases during the 1990s. Her sorrow was compounded when she was unable to attend his funeral in Michoacan, Mexico, they said.

"She seemed so normal, like a regular mother", said neighbor Letty Perez.

Also, an immigration official said the woman, who is from Mexico, entered the USA illegally. "Nothing else matters, I am representing the people that are humble, hardworking, the people who suffer and those who have a lot of charges so they understand everything is possible with God". "She's just very upset".

The matriarch of a Loganville, Georgia, family has been charged with stabbing and killing nearly her entire family, aside from a daughter who managed to barely survive what authorities are calling a "horrendous" slaughter that occurred on Wednesday. "She was good, went to our church last weekend".
