After Losing Custody of Kids to Father, Mother Kills Kids, Attempts Suicide by Strangulation

Posted: September 18, 2013 in Uncategorized

Marilyn Edge was supposed to turn her kids over to their dad, Mark Edge, as part of an ongoing custody dispute. Last week a Cobb County judge awarded Mark Edge temporary full custody.

“We’re just devastated,” Mark Edge’s attorney Marian Weeks said.

Marilyn Edge was supposed to start paying child support and turn the kids over in Georgia on Sunday at noon. Instead, a police officer showed up at Mark Edge’s door with the devastating news.

“We were frightened that she wouldn’t come with the kids yesterday. Mark and I never dreamed she would do this. We would have thought it was more likely she would hurt Mark, but never thought she would hurt the kids,” Weeks said.

Saturday, Marilyn Edge crashed her car into an electrical box outside a Home Depot in Costa Mesa, CA. Police said she tried to strangle herself as rescue crews approached. It was then police said Marilyn Edge told them where they could find her children, 13-year-old Jaelen and 9-year-old Faith, dead inside a Santa Ana hotel room.
