VIDEO: Father Tried to Decapitate His Girlfriend and Their 7-Year-Old Daughter As He Fatally Stabbed Them in Their Home

It’s always a big risk living with someone who has a history of violent mental illness. That’s the decision that Ania Kosinska made though, and tragically, she ended up paying for it with not only her life, but her daughter’s as well.

Maciej Kotlinski, 35, faces two counts of first-degree murder for the killings of Ania Kosinska, 34, and Victoria Kotlinski in their Chicago, Illinois home. He also allegedly murdered their dog and cat.

The bodies of the mother and daughter showed signs that their killer had tried to decapitate them, police told the Chicago Tribune.

… An autopsy conducted on Monday determined that Kosinska and her daughter died of multiple stab and incised wounds, the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

It’s not clear what exactly prompted the slayings but friends and neighbors said the couple, who were originally from Poland, often fought, the Tribune reported.

Friends told the paper that Kotlinski had a history of mental illness and a temper.

‘[He] was not well,’ one friend said. ‘He’d been giving her trouble for a while.’

Neighbors said the couple fought often and police had to be called on multiple occasions. It is indeed a tragedy that Kosinska died, but the biggest tragedy is that an innocent child, who had no control over the situation, was killed due to her father’s violent compulsions and her mother’s refusal to protect her.
