PHOENIX (AP) – Authorities say a Phoenix woman has been arrested on suspicion of killing her three children after they were found dead inside the family home.

Police say the 22-year-old mother, whose name has not been released, admitted to harming her three children. She was in the process Tuesday morning of being booked on three counts of first-degree murder.

A relative who lives at the residence called police late Monday. Responding officers found a 7-month-old girl, 2-year-old girl and 3-year-old boy in a living room area.

The children were unresponsive and pronounced dead after officers administered CPR and fire officials provided first aid.
