DuPage County Judge Robert Kleeman granted a request from prosecuters to test hair and saliva samples of Elzbieta Plackowska, 40, during a hearing on Monday, according to Daily Herald.
Plackowska was indicted Nov. 15 on five counts of first-degree murder for the alleged stabbing deaths of her 7-year-old son Justin Plackowska and five counts of first-degree murder for the death of 5-year-old Olivia Dworakowski.
Both children were found stabbed to death on the night of Oct. 30 when Plackowska was babysitting them inside a townhouse in the 800 block of Quin Court in Naperville, prosecutors said.
On the night of Oct. 30, when Plackowska was brought in for questioning after the murders, she told police that the children had evil inside of them and she was trying to get the evil and devil out of them.
Plackowska then told police she was angry with her husband because he was gone most days working as a truck driver and did not appreciate her.
Plackowska's next court hearing is scheduled for March 22.
If convicted, she faces a mandatory sentence of natural life in prison without the possibility of parole, according to the DuPage County State's Attorney.
