Mom suspected of killing her three little girls

A 30-year-old Southern California mother is facing murder charges after her three young daughters were found dead in their Torrance home, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said.

Sheriff’s Deputies from Carson Station responded to the home after receiving a rescue call just after 5:00 p.m. Tuesday.

“When they arrived, they were met by family members who told the deputies that a mother had killed her children,” a sheriff's statement said.

Inside the home, police discovered the bodies of three young girls lying in a pool of blood on the bed near their mother, officials told CNN affiliate KTLA.

KTLA reports police said the mother, Carol Coronado, was found naked and holding a knife.

The children, ranging in age from 2 months old to 3 years, were pronounced dead at the scene, according to police.

Coronado was arrested and transported to the local hospital for examination, police said. She was later transported to the Carson Sheriff’s Station for booking.

Authorities are not releasing additional details at this time.

Anyone with information about this incident is encouraged to contact the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department's Homicide Bureau at (323) 890-5500.
