Ming Dong Chen has been named as the man who butchered a mother and her four young children to death in a horrific stabbing rampage in Brooklyn on Saturday night.

Chen, 25, is an illegal alien from China, who has been charged with hacking to death five family members inside their home. See the suspect's photo here.

Chen savagely hacked to death mother Qiao Zhen Li, 37, and her four children to death. The children ranged from ages 1 to 9. William Zhou, 1, was nearly decapitated by Chen, along his other siblings Kevin Zhuo, 5, Amy Zhuo, 7, and Linda Zhuo, 9, all died as a result of the attack.

Chen had been living with his victims in their Sunset Park apartment for more than a week before he attacked the young family.

A police source reportedly told The Post that the crazed man confessed that he killed the family and that he did it because they had too much and he was jealous of their way of life.

Chen was caught carrying a bloody kitchen knife and bloodied clothes by authorities who were near the area.

The suspect reportedly showed no remorse for his attack and reportedly became violent during questioning.

The mother of the children's sister had reportedly walked into the apartment as the attack was taking place and frantically called 911 and the children's father.

The father of the children was screaming when cops arrived at the scene at 11p.m. last night. Chen is said to be a cousin of the father. The father reportedly tried to stop Chen as he walked in on the attack, but was too late from saving his family.
