BROCKTON - A Duxbury mother has been indicted by a grand jury on charges that she murdered her three young children earlier this year.

Lindsay Clancy, 32, has been charged with three counts each of murder and strangulation. 

Prosecutors said Clancy killed her 5 year-old daughter, Cora, and 3-year-old son, Dawson back on January 24. Both children were found dead in their home on Summer Street. Her 8-month-old son, Callan, died at Boston Children's Hospital a few days later. Prosecutors said all three children had been strangled.

After allegedly killing her children, prosecutors said Clancy tried to take her own life by jumping out the window. She survived but was left paralyzed from the waist down. She's currently being held without bail and being treated at a medical facility.

Sources told the I-Team that Clancy may have been suffering from postpartum psychosis. She was on leave from her job as a nurse at Massachusetts General Hospital.

Clancy will be arraigned on the charges at a later date.
