Mum jailed for killing her 3 kids
By LAURA CAROE
The youngsters' bloodstained bodies were discovered lying side by side at their townhouse following a gas explosion at the building, each with eight stab wounds and multiple abrasions and bruises.
She was sentenced today at the High Court in Glasgow after Donald Findlay QC spent more than two hours delivering a plea of mitigation on her behalf. The court heard that Riggi and her estranged husband Pasquale, a Shell UK engineer, had been involved in a legal battle over the children's custody at the time of the killings.
"And you, who had a genuine but abnormal and possessive love of your children, have lost them and are brought to this sorry pass."
