Naperville Woman Charged in Stabbing Deaths to Undergo Psych Evaluation

DuPage County judge orders psychiatric exam for Naperville babysitter Elzbieta Plackowska.

DuPage County Judge Robert Kleeman ordered a psychiatric exam for Naperville babysitter Elzbieta Plackowska, who is accused of stabbing to death her 7-year-old son and a 5-year-old girl, according to the Daily Herald.

In the anticipation of a possible insanity defense, prosecutors filed a request last week to have Plackowska undergo a psychological evaluation, which was granted by Kleeman Tuesday, the Daily Herald reports.

Prosecutors said 40-year-old Plackowska told her 7-year-old son Justin and 5-year-old Olivia Dworakowski to get on their knees and pray before fatally stabbing both children nearly 100 times.

On the night of Oct. 30, when Plackowska was brought in for questioning after the murders, she told police that the children had evil inside of them and she was trying to get the evil and devil out of them. 

Plackowska then told police she was angry with her husband because he was gone most days working as a truck driver and did not appreciate her.

A psychological evaluation of Plackowska could begin within days, according to the Daily Herald.
