woman, whose identity has not been released, is accused of murdering two children. The victims are thought to have been between the ages of five and 10 when they died. Their bodies were discovered in a suitcase that was bought by a family at an auction in New Zealand in August.
arrest of the suspect came after Interpol issued a red notice for the woman. She was taken into custody in the South Korean port city of Ulsan in September. Three officers from New Zealand traveled to South Korea to transport the woman back to Manukau, in South Auckland, where she is now facing two murder charges.
motive for the murders is not yet known. The bodies of the victims had likely been stored for several years when they were found. The family who bought the suitcase at the auction is not thought to have any connection to the incident. The investigation is ongoing and authorities have said they will not be identifying the victims at this time.
