A Naperville woman accused of murdering her own child and a little girl left in her care appeared in court earlier than scheduled.
Judge Robert Kleeman ordered Elzbieta Plackowska to provide hair and saliva samples for DNA comparison.
Prosecutors want to test the samples against evidence found in the Naperville home where Plackowska’s seven year old son Justin and five year old Olivia Dworakowski, who was left in her care, were stabbed to death just a day before Halloween.
Police found a bloody knife inside the home and strands of hair in the hands of the two children, suggesting the young victims struggled against their attacker.
The defense did not object to the motion.
Plackowska will be back in court on March 22nd.
