2 children found dead inside auto, woman facing murder charges

2 children found dead inside auto, woman facing murder charges

Autopsies will be conducted on both children, who were not identified by authorities.

According to Pinal County Sheriff's Office (PCSO), a two-year-old child and a 10-month-old child were found dead and strapped to auto seats inside a vehicle.

The mother of the two children, 20-year-old Brittany Velasquez, is facing two counts of murder.

The sheriff's office noted "evidence on the scene indicated foul-play", prompting them to arrest the victims' mother, Brittany Velasquez.

The bodies were found outside the family's home in the historic mining town of Superior, a community of about 2,900 people about 60 miles east of Phoenix.

An officer called Child Services but a state official on the line told the officer she "would not be able to investigate this issue until (redacted) states that she no longer willing to take care of the 2 children", according to the January police report.

Some of the children's relatives were inside the home when authorities arrived at the crime scene late Monday, but Forghani said she could not provide information about how the children were placed or left in the auto.

Law enforcement officials say they called Arizona's Department of Child Safety in early January to report their suspicions of child neglect or abuse involving a toddler and infant whose mother has been arrested in connection with their deaths. "There were no legal grounds to remove the children from the parent's custody".

Authorities have not disclosed a motive or said how the children died.

News of the children's death spread rapidly among the town's small population.

Arizona authorities say the mother of a baby and a toddler found dead in auto seats has been has been arrested on suspicion of first-degree murder.

Authorities have not said how the children died.
