The term maternal filicide means that the mother or father of a child knowing killing his/her child. This horrible crime is usually committed by a parent that are seriously disturbed of has a mental disorder such as depression. And this might sound like something straight out of a horror movie but it really does happen and for multiple reasons. One of these is that the mother rationalizes the killing is what the child wants. Another that she is mentally ill or to get back at the husband. Now its one thing to read about it but it's another to know about it.
