    A Georgia mom accused of [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] appeared in court Friday morning, smiling and giving repeated "thumbs-up" to the camera.

    With the help of a translator, Isabel Martinez told the Gwinnett County judge that she will defend herself in court and that her "attorney is the people we are fighting for," [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].

    The station uploaded a video of the disturbing gestures to Facebook:

    Martinez allegedly killed her husband Martin Romero, 33, and her four children; Isabela Martinez, 10, Dacota Romero, 7, Dillan Romero, 4, and Axel Romero, 2.

    At one point during her court appearance, she got down on her knees and bowed.

    Martinez has been charged with multiple counts of murder and was not granted bond.

    Not sure what to think, her actions seem so bizarre, maybe she had some sort of psychotic breakdown or is it an act?

    I'm leaning toward a psychotic breakdown at this point.
    Yes, it could be an act, but her behavior, in total, the murders, the court behavior and if we had access to her jail behavior, it might point exactly to a breakdown. Or not.
    Need more info.

    Girl Says Her Mom Asked for Forgiveness Before Stabbing Her
    July 21,2017
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]


    Everyone was asleep when Isabel Martinez began stabbing her children and then fatally stabbed her husband as he tried to seek help, her daughter told a child welfare caseworker.

    Diana Romero, 9, said her mother told her she loved her and asked for forgiveness before cutting her. Martinez told the girl she was "going to the sky to see Jesus," and the girl cried and told her mother she didn't want to go see Jesus.
    A report from the Georgia Division of Family and Children Services, first reported by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, includes a caseworker's notes from a July 10 interview with Diana Romero, as well as notes from a jailhouse interview earlier that day with Martinez, who faces charges including murder and aggravated assault in the July 6 deaths of her husband and four of her children


    Martinez behaved bizarrely during her first court appearance on July 7, waving, smiling and posing for news cameras and telling the judge she didn't need an attorney. The court appointed attorney Robert Greenwald to represent her. He initially filed a motion for a psychiatric evaluation but later withdrew that request.

    Wonder why her attorney withdrew request for a psych eval?
    That seems odd to me.
