    The estranged wife of celebrated Ukrainian pianist Vadym Kholodenko is suspected of having smothered her children with pillows before attempting suicide inside their suburban Fort Worth home, according to a police report.

    Sofya Tsygankova,31, charged on Monday with two counts of capital murder in the deaths of daughters, Nika, 5, and Michela, 1, was transferred to the medical unit of a county jail on Tuesday. She had been in an area hospital for treatment of what were suspected to be self-inflicted knife wounds, police in the suburb of Benbrook said.

    Kholodenko, 29, left an area hotel on Thursday morning to pick up the children when he came across the crime scene at his wife's home, according to the arrest affidavit released on Tuesday. An official autopsy has not yet been released.

    The award-winning pianist discovered his wife inside a bedroom closet, wearing a blood-soaked nightgown with cuts to her wrists and a puncture wound on her chest, the arrest record said.

    Detectives found the children in separate bedrooms and both girls appeared to have been dead for some time. A pillow was found resting near or partially on top of their heads, the affidavit said.

    She told detectives that she "didn't see any future for me and my kids" and admitted to wounding herself with a knife and swallowing a lot of pills.

    She has not made any public statements about the deaths.

    Sickening.

    I hate when people kill kids. Someone somewhere would have loved to have raised those two
    Little girls.

    They were estranged because she wouldn't touch his organ, or so I assume.

    I hid / kept my kids for awhile at my parents, had to. Bitches like this are for real, and when they don't get their way, they will do anything to prove a point.

    It's scary as fuck, and more common than people realize.

    The most dangerous time is when you're dumping someone.

    Damn, so she had no identity beyond "famous pianist's wife"?

    That pic looks like she had a psychotic break.

    Yeah, those eyes don't look like they belong to a rational person.
