Australia: Man accused of killing his wife, three children and mother-in-law
In Australia, a 24-year old man is being accused of killing his family at their home in Perth. Anthony Robert Harvey is facing the charge of murdering his wife, their three girls and their grandmother.
The corpses of 41-year old Mara Lee Harvey, two-year old twins Alice and Beatrix, Charlotte aged 3, and 73-year old Beverley Quinn were found by police on Sunday after the accused himself went to report the case at a police station.
It emerged that the five persons were killed with a heavy object and stabbed with knives. While the mother and her children were allegedly killed on the 3rd September, the elderly woman was murdered the day after when she went to visit her relatives.
The community in Bedford, where the family lived, was shocked with the tragedy while police officers who found the macabre scene are being given psychological assistance.
