A Filipina allegedly killed her husband and then herself while her two children were nearby in Forsyth County, Georgia, USA, authorities said. 

According to the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office, Jackielyn Belangel Brewster, 32, allegedly murdered her 50-year-old husband Adrian Brewster sometime over the weekend before taking her own life on Monday.

On August 20, deputies arrived at the couple’s home in North Forsyth County, Georgia after a friend of the family called 911 for a welfare check at the house. 

Authorities then found the lifeless bodies of Adrian and Jackielyn. The cause of death for the couple is being withheld pending autopsy results.

Two children were found inside the house at the time. The 9-year-old was Jackielyn’s child and the 3-year-old was the couple’s. Both are staying with family members.

Friends of Jackielyn claimed she was a victim of domestic violence. They have created a GoFundMe page with a goal of raising $10,000 to bring her body back home to the Philippines.
