French man allegedly kills kids during first weekend he had custody

LYON, France, May 19 (UPI) — A man in France allegedly killed his two children on the first weekend he had custody of them after splitting with his ex-wife, an official said.

Police in Lyon, France, arrested a 48-year-old man, whose name was not reported, for allegedly killing his two children at the center of a custody dispute with his ex-wife, Britain’s Sunday Telegraph reported.

The mother, whose name was not reported, bumped into her ex-husband as he was leaving the lobby of his apartment building while wearing roller skates and covered in blood.

She then found her two children — ages 5 and 10 — dead in his apartment.

“It was the first time since the divorce that the man was allowed to be alone with the children,” a judicial source told the Telegraph.

He said a knife, “which may have been used for the murders,” was found in the apartment.

The man allegedly had problems with alcohol and physically abused his ex-wife in the past, the newspaper said.
