Tania Clarence has been charged with three counts of murder following the deaths of her three children in New Malden.

She will appear tomorrow at the Wimbledon Magistrates, London Metropolitan Police reported.

The children were reportedly suffering from Spinal Muscular Atrophy, a life limiting debilitating disease.

On Tuesday London Metropolitan police said in statement officers were called to a home in Thetford Road, New Malden.

When the officers arrived, accompanied by an ambulance service, the three children were found dead at the scene.

It will be a further blow for husband Gary and father to the three children who returned to England after visiting Cape Town with his sole remaining eight-year-old daughter, Taya Grace.
