LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. (AP) - A Georgia woman has been indicted in the deaths of her husband and four of her children.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports 33-year-old Isabel Martinez was indicted Thursday on five counts of murder, and one count each of aggravated assault and third-degree cruelty to children. She’s also accused of stabbing her 9-year-old daughter, who survived and is now in the care of extended family.

Police found the bodies of 33-year-old Martin Romero, 10-year-old Isabela Martinez, 7-year-old Dacota Romero, 4-year-old Dillan Martin-Romero and 2-year-old Axel Romero on July 6 in the Loganville mobile home they shared. Diana Romero was found with stab wounds but alive.

Martinez is being held at the Gwinnett County Detention Center without bond. Her attorney, Robert Greenwald, did not immediately respond Friday to a telephone message seeking comment.
