A mother accused of killing her three young children sobbed quietly as she was remanded to a secure hospital under the mental health act during a bail hearing today.
Tania Clarence, 42, is alleged to have killed her three-year-old twin sons, Ben and Max, and four year-old daughter, Olivia - all of whom suffered from type 2 spinal muscular atrophy.
Ms Clarence looked pale and fragile, and spoke only to confirm her name in a thick South African accent, as she appeared via video-link at the Old Bailey.
Her husband Gary Clarence sat in the public gallery during the hearing.
A plea and case management hearing will be held at the Old Bailey on July 15.
