Police say an apparently suicidal woman whose remarks sent authorities to a Southern California hotel room is the mother of two children found dead there.
Santa Ana police Cpl. Anthony Bertagna (burr-TAHN'-yuh) said Saturday night that the 42-year-old woman from Scottsdale, Ariz., has been released from a hospital and will soon be booked for investigation of two counts of murder.
Police say that earlier Saturday the woman deliberately drove her car into poles guarding an electrical box in a supermarket parking lot.
They say the woman made statements that led them to a Santa Ana hotel room where the two kids were found dead.
No names have been released, and the age and gender of the children were also being withheld while relatives are notified.
