Rekha Kumari-Baker denies murdering her two daughters
A psychiatrist has told a court a woman accused of killing her two daughters was not suffering from a mental illness at the time of the attacks.
Rekha Kumari-Baker, 41, of Stretham, Cambridgeshire, denies murdering Davina, 16, and Jasmine, 13 in 2007.
Cambridge Crown Court heard she told a psychiatrist she was on "autopilot" when she attacked the girls.
Ms Kumari-Baker is expected to argue she was suffering from an "abnormality of mind".
Dr Neil Hunt, a consultant psychiatrist, told jurors that he interviewed Ms Kumari-Baker on the day she was arrested following the alleged incident at her home.
He said the accused told him she had woken early in the morning, had a drink, went to the bathroom, then picked up knives.
Dr Hunt said Ms Kumari-Baker told him she went out for a drive after the attack then returned home and realised she was drenched in blood.
"She said, 'This was not supposed to happen. I love my girls'," Dr Hunt told jurors.
He said: "Given the extreme and unusual behaviour, I was concerned that there was a high chance that she may be suffering from a mental disorder.
"I didn't think she had any serious mental illness. I didn't think there was evidence of any mental illness."
The hearing continues.
