Arizona Mom Booked In California Death Of Children
SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) — Police say the two children found dead in a Southern California hotel room after their suicidal mother crashed her car outside a shopping complex were a 13-year-old boy and a 10-year-old girl.
Santa Ana police Cpl. Anthony Bertagna identified the mother Sunday as 42-year-old Marilyn Edge of Scottsdale, Ariz.
The children's names were not released.
Edge was booked late Saturday on two counts of murder.
Police say the boy and girl were discovered early Saturday in Santa Ana after Edge crashed her car in nearby Costa Mesa and then told authorities where they could find the children's bodies.
Bertagna says Edge had propane in her car when she tried to crash it into an electrical box. She also tried to strangle herself with a belt or rope as rescuers approached.
