Mum-of-two ran out of room with hands smeared in blood saying 'I killed them, I hurt them', murder trial jury told

A MOTHER ran out of her room at a hostel with her hands smeared in blood saying "I killed them, I hurt them", a jury heard today.
Samira Lupidi is on trial at Bradford Crown Court accused of murdering her two young children, three-year-old Evelyn Lupidi and Jasmine Weaver, aged 17 months.
Infront of a packed public gallery, Prosecutor Peter Moulson QC told the jury that Lupidi has admitted manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility but pleads not guilty to murdering both of her daughters.
Lupidi, 24, sat in the dock with an Italian interpreter weeping into a handkerchief as the case was opened.
Part way through details of how the children were found dead, the trial judge Mr Justice Edis allowed her to leave court and sit in a room at the back because she was so distressed.
Lupidi, her long, black hair tied in a bun, wore a light grey cardigan, white shirt and black skirt for the trial.
Mr Moulson told the jury: “This case involves the killing by the defendant of her own two young children in November last year.”
Mr Moulson said the father of the children Karl Weaver was living with Lupidi in Church Lane, Heckmondwike, when the police responded to a report by her on November 16 that she had been assaulted.
When the police arrived Mr Weaver was not present at the address and Lupidi claimed he had hit her on her arms and legs, though she had no injuries.
Lupidi told officers she was in a four-and-a-half year relationship with Mr Weaver after they met through the internet in her native Italy.
Evelyn was born in Italy and Jasmine arrived after the three had moved to England. Lupidi complained that Mr Weather controlled her, preventing access to her family except by phone and controlling her spending. She said she believed he was “trying to get rid of her”.
The police took Lupidi and the children to a refuge in Bradford.
Mr Moulson said it was not in the public interest to publish the address of the hostel and it would be referred to in the trial as the refuge.
