A woman wept as she appeared in court charged with the murder of her three young disabled children - watched by her devastated husband.

Tania Clarence, 42, looked over at her husband and broke down in tears as she stood in the dock accused of killing her three-year-old twin sons, Ben and Max, and four year-old daughter, Olivia, at their home.

Her investment banker husband, Gary, 43, also broke down in tears as he locked eyes with his wife from his seat in the public gallery during the brief hearing.
