She appeared in court where she spoke for the first time stating that she was ready to go to prison. Before speaking, however, her doctor told the court that Chen in her view is still not ready to be house at the Kolbe Foundation. Her doctor further told the court that Chen needs more time at the facility she is presently being housed.

Chen’s doctor is also of the view that she will need more time at the facility which may exceed a 6-month period. It is for this reason that she was further remanded at the facility for an entire month before her next court appearance.

Before leaving the court, Chen made a request to see her daughter.

On Tuesday, April 30th, 2013 Chen was charged with three counts of murder for the Saturday,  April 27th, 2013 murder of 3 of her 4 children ages 1, 3 and 4 years of age. At the time, she reportedly left her Mile 8 home where she caught a bus and stopped off at the Belizean Beach. Whilst at the beach, she allegedly drown the children one by one.

Her eldest, a 6-year-old  girl, saw what her mother was doing and as a result ran for help.

By the time police personnel and coast guard authorities from the area responded, three of Chen’s youngest children had already been killed.

Their lifeless bodies were found floating in the shallow sea by the time police officers responded to the incident.
