(CNN) — A mom in Southern California is facing murder charges after her three daughters were found dead in their Torrance-area home, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office said Tuesday.
The children’s ages range from 2 months to 3 years.
Family members told sheriff’s deputies that the mother, 30-year-old Carol Coronado, had killed her children.
The discovery was made by Coronado’s mother, who had stopped by to visit her granddaughters, the affiliate said.
Coronado was arrested and taken to a local hospital for examination before being taken to the sheriff’s station in Carson for booking, a sheriff’s statement said.
