A mother has admitted to killing her three children at their home in Edinburgh last year.

Theresa Riggi, 47, pled guilty to a charge of culpable homicide on the grounds of diminished responsibility. She was originally charged with murder.

Her eight-year-old twins Austin and Gianluca and their five-year-old sister Cecilia were found dead at their flat in Slateford Road on 4 August 2010.

She will be sentenced next month.
