Louise Monje, New York Axe-Murdering Mom - 1945

FULL TEXT: New York, July 19 – Six-year-old Philip Monje was hacked to death in his cot early today and police said the boy's mother, Louise, 35 confessed she killed him with an older son's Boy Scout ax.

Mrs. Monje, separated from her husband, Albert, a garage mechanic, since last March, was taken to the Borough Park police station, Brooklyn, for further questioning. No charge was placed against her.

The detective said, Mrs. Monje awakened her mother, Mrs. Anna Muller, 77, and sobbed, “Well, I did it.”

The other children are Paul, 16, and Roland, 10.
