On Wednesday, first responders encountered a disturbing discovery when the bodies of two children were found in a Phoenix apartment near 13th Street and Mountain View Road.
Investigators are now saying that the mother, who was also injured, suffering from what are believed to be multiple self-inflicted stab wounds, is in the suspect in the murders. She is reportedly in critical condition but is expected to survive.
Detectives have not said what led up to the deaths. The Maricopa County Medical Examiner’s Officer will do a full investigation to determine how the children died.
The Phoenix police have been called out to this families apartment before. Officials say the father called police in March 2021 after he and the mother got into a verbal fight. The officers responded determined that no crime was committed, and further report was filed.
