THAILAND (CBS Seattle) — A Thai mother is accused of killing, cooking and eating her two young sons because she thought they were pigs.

According to the Bangkok Post, the unidentified woman, who is a member of the Musur hill tribe, was taken into custody last week after police found her sleeping with her children’s body parts around her.

The deputy director general for the Mental Health Department said the woman hallucinated that her kids – ages 1 and 5 — were pigs.

“The woman killed her children because she didn’t continue her treatment and didn’t take her medication,” Dr. Kiattiphum Wongrachit told the Bangkok Post.

The paper reports that the woman was initially treated for a mental illness in 2007.

She has been charged with murder.
