An ‘erratic' mother that was arrested for allegedly stabbing her two young children to death in their New York City apartment asked for ‘mercy' and ‘repented all wrong doings' just hours before the tragedy.
Dimone Fleming, 22, is suspected of knifing her three-year-old son, Deshawn and 11-month-old, Octavius, to death before concealing them in the bathtub in the Bronx.
Cops missed the tots' bodies during their first visit to the scene – and it was their father Columbus Canada who made the tragic discovery last night.
Fleming's family have now revealed the mother thought her children were ‘devils' and she would often talk about demons.
And her harrowing final post on social media, just hours before the bloodbath, saw her begging for mercy and ‘repenting' for all her ‘wrong doings.'
Fleming wrote online, at 6am the morning of her massacre: ‘It's only one true God and I repent from all wrong doings and negative influence. Leaving all things that's no longer serves me…Thank you for your mercy.'
Police arrested Fleming, who was found ‘erratic and naked' before they realized that the two youngsters had been stabbed multiple times in the neck and torso.
The horrific incident occurred at a third-floor apartment in a family shelter near in Mount Hope around 7:20pm on Saturday. Emergency services were called to the scene twice – and only on the second trip did they find the young children dead.
Witnesses living in the building told DailyMail.com they saw the frantic mother holding her head and screaming: ‘What did I do? What did I do?' in the hallway just moments before the police first arrived.
The children's father Columbus Canada, who discovered his lifeless children in the filled bathtub, had been in an argument with Fleming the day before. He left the home a day prior and had stayed in his car overnight, DailyMail.com understands.
Fleming, who has not yet been declared an official suspect, remains in custody as a person of interest in the case. No charges have been filed.
