The mother of three children who drowned when their car plunged into a lake in April has been charged with their murder.
Akon Guode, 36, was charged with the murder of 16 month-old Bol and four-year-old twins Hanger and Madit at an out-of-sessions court hearing on Monday.
The three children died when the car she was driving crashed into Lake Gladman in Wyndham Vale on April 8.
She was also charged with the attempted murder of her six-year-old girl Aluel, who was in the car as well but survived the crash.
Guode looked downcast and avoided eye contact with bail justice Ken Coghlan as he read out the charges.
Speaking through an interpreter, she said she had been suffering from chest pains and made a point of mentioning to the bail justice that she had not been in any sort of trouble since arriving in Australia.
Guode has been remanded in custody and will face the Melbourne Magistrates Court on Tuesday.
