Three children, ages 2 months old and 5 and 8 years old were found on Thursday stabbed to death by their mother, according to Phoenix police.
According to AP reports, the mother, who hasn’t been identified yet tried to kill herself, after she fatally stabbed her 2-month-old, 5-year-old and 8-year-old children.
Sgt. Trent Crump says the woman’s brother called 911 after he got home late Wednesday night and found that he had been locked out of the house.
Crump said the brother eventually got into the home and found his sister with self-inflicted stab wounds.
He ran to get towels to stop her bleeding but found her in a bathtub trying to drown herself.
Police said the woman told officers who arrived at the scene that her children were somewhere safe. But police then found the boys, all dead from stab wounds, with least two of the bodies hidden in a closet.
She was promptly arrested and charged with murder.
