Mother 'stabs two daughters to death so father can't see them'

A mother stabbed her two young daughters to death to prevent her abusive ex-boyfriend from seeing them, a court has heard.

Samira Lupidi, 24, is alleged to have stabbed three-year-old Evelyn and 17-month-old Jasmine nine times each while they were in bed last November.

A social worker said they heard her saying: 'It's his fault. Now he has a reason to kill me. If I can't have them then he can't have them.'

The trial at Bradford Crown Court was told that their deaths happened 24 hours after Samira fled to a women's refuge to get away from boyfriend Carl Weaver, 31 following reports that he'd hit her arms and legs.

Prosecutor Peter Moulson said: 'On November 17 a support worker went to the flat in the refuge.

'Samira Lupidi opened the door and ran out the room. She was on the telephone speaking in English and Italian.

'She was heard to say: "I hurt them, I killed them". She was heard repeatedly to say that she had killed them.



'Her hands were covered in blood. A worker, Farzana Kauser, went into the room and saw the girls with stab wounds to the chest.'

Mr Moulson continued: At the time of her arrest, the defendant said she wanted to kill herself. She said she had hurt her children and wanted to hurt herself too.'

In a statement read to the court, PC Kirsty Wright said she took the mother and her two daughters to the refuge in Heckmondwike after she made allegations of abuse.

Wright said Italian-born Lupidi told officers she was scared what Weaver was going to do with her and she wanted to move back to Italy.

Weaver had allegedly prevented her from having her own bank account and refused to allow her to have a job, the court heard.

Shortly before the killings, she had asked him for money to buy a new coat but he had turned her down.

Saimira denies murder and the trial continues.
