Storyline

In an unusual case the Crown Court has to decide whether Megwynn Spiteri is fit to stand trial on the charge of murdering her five year old twins David and Maria. The defence accept that the children died after Mrs. Spiteri gave them an overdose of dexedrines. However they assert that she was unable to cope with them - they were difficult and disturbed - and killed them while suffering from psychotic delusions that they were possessed by demons. Mrs. Spiteri says she believes the children are still alive and that she "saved them" and the defence argue this proves she is unfit for trial. However the prosecution - while accepting her difficult personal circumstances - say she knew what she was doing at the time of their deaths and now and has invented the delusions to avoid trial.
