BROCKTON, Mass. (AP) — Prosecutors say a Massachusetts mother charged with fatally stabbing her two sons with a kitchen knife may have done it for money and potential notoriety.

The Enterprise reports that prosecutors said during 43-year-old Latarsha Sanders’ arraignment Tuesday the Brockton woman had planned to set up an online fundraiser for her family and got a post office box for “fan mail” shortly before she allegedly stabbed her sons in February.
