By Amanda Holtzer,

Carol Coronado, 30, was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of killing her three daughters in their California home. The three children - a 3-year-old, 2-year-old and 2-month-old - were pronounced dead at the scene.

Authorities responded to the home around 5:20 p.m. The Associated Press reports that the Los Angeles County Sheriff Department said in a statement, “When they arrived, they were met by family members who told the deputies that a mother had killed her children."

Neighbor Ashley Madrid told The Daily Breeze that the children’s father was working on his car across the street when his mother-in-law found her daughter and three children in a pool of blood on the bed. The mother of the children was holding a knife.

In regards to the children’s father, Madrid said, “I saw when they were bringing him out. He was crying. He was crying, ‘She killed my daughters!’”

Coronado was arrested on suspicion of murder and transported to a hospital for examination. She was then taken to a sheriff’s station for booking. Authorities say she has made no statement.
