A woman who struggled to conceive for 9 years, has lost of twin babies after her dog mauled them to death out of possible jealousy.
The woman identified as Elaine Novais, 29 left her 26-day-old premature babies at their home in Piripá, in the northeastern state of Bahia, Brazil, last Tuesday, June 23.
She had not been gone for long when she heard the girls Anne and Analú crying. She rushed back to their bedroom but it was too late.
The Labrador and American foxhound cross had brutally attacked the girls. Mrs Novais pulled the jealous dog away from the twins, but it had already inflicted fatal damage on their abdomens.

A nurse who lived nearby performed first aid on the twins. One died instantly from her injuries and the other later died at Maria Pedreira Barbosa Municipal Hospital after going into cardiac arrest.
Mrs Novais collapsed from shock after the death of her babies and she had to be sedated at the hospital. Mrs Novais and her husband Regis, 32, had struggled for nine years to have children.
The dog, described as “docile”, is believed to have become jealous after not receiving as much attention since the birth of the babies.
A family member claimed the dog “was left out in a way, and it no longer had the attention and affection of its owners provided before”, reports The Sun.
‘That could have caused some kind of jealousy and led the dog to attack the children.”
Anne and Analú died one day before their due date, having arrived a month early via cesarean section.
Police are investigating the deaths, but are yet to take testimonies from the devastated parents.
Man 78, Kills 74-Year-Old Wife With A Hammer Over Alleged Unfaithfulness
Police have arrested a Washington state resident for allegedly killing his wife of 53 years by hitting her with a hammer because he suspected her of cheating.
It was learnt that the 78-year-old suspect identified as James Flora was booked into the Pierce County Jail on Monday August 3 on a charge of first-degree murder in the death of his spouse, identified as 74-year-old Ella Joyce Flora.
James Flora had walked into Tacoma General Hospital and told staff that he had choked his wife during a fight at their home.
Officers with the University Place Police Department responded to the Flora family’s home in the 5600 block of 61st Avenue West to perform a welfare check on the wife after the husband’s statement.
When officers rang the doorbell, no one answered, so they gained entry into the house through an open window. Inside, they found the 74-year-old victim dead.
An autopsy performed by the Pierce County Medical Examiner’s Office determined that the victim’s cause of death was blunt force trauma to the head.
Investigators said that James repeatedly struck his wife with a hammer and then put plastic wrap on her mouth and nose until she stopped breathing.
According to charging documents cited by Tacoma News Tribune, the couple had a volatile relationship and their neighbors reported often hearing screams coming from their house, including last Sunday.
James claimed his wife had been cheating on him for years and he knew about it.
On Sunday night, August 2, the couple got into an argument after Ella allegedly sneezed into her husband’s dinner.
The pair eventually walked away from the fight, and James fell asleep in a chair.
James told police that he woke up to find Ella trying to cut his dialysis tube and slit his wrist, inflicting two cuts.
James said he went to the bathroom to tend to his wounds and returned brandishing a hammer, which he allegedly used to attack his wife.
“He continued to strike her with the hammer and said that he could not stop,” the court filings alleged. “When asked why he was hitting his wife with the hammer, he stated that it was because his wife was a ‘ho’.”
In an effort to muffle her screams, James said he put plastic wrap on her face.
The couple have two grown daughters and several grandchildren.
One of their daughters, Patrice Flora, wrote on Facebook of her mother’s killing: “How can you have 53 years of marriage and kill them like a wild animal!! I pray the hell you put my mother through in her final minutes you will experience everyday until you die!!”
