Woman Arrested After Her 2 Children Found Dead in Suitcases

Police in South Korea have arrested a 42-year-old woman on murder charges after her two children’s remains were found in suitcases in New Zealand last month.

The woman is suspected of fleeing New Zealand to South Korea in 2018 after allegedly murdering her 7 and 10-year-old children in Auckland.

The Korean woman, who denied the murder allegations, was arrested after Interpol issued a red notice, Korea’s National Police Agency reported.
