The mother of three children discovered dead in her Los Angeles home has been arrested, authorities say.

The children ranged in age from eight to twelve years old.

According to authorities, a mother has been detained after her three children were discovered dead at their house in Los Angeles on Mother’s Day.

According to Fox 11 Los Angeles, the unidentified woman was brought out of the house on a stretcher and held by police early Sunday morning. Her neighbors reported her as being in a state of distress.


According to the next-door neighbor “My vision was impaired, and I couldn’t stop hearing the words, ‘My family is abusing me.’ And all I could hear were cries, which I couldn’t figure out what they were.”
