Another mother has done the unthinkable by killing her very own children, this time in a Tucson, AZ suburb.
Police say they arrested Perla Morales, 25, after she killed her two children, 17-month-old Richard Rosovich Jr., and 4-year-old Emma Rosovich. She has been charged on suspicion of two counts of first-degree murder.
Morales shot her children and then turned the gun on herself Saturday night.
According to AZ News:
Morales’ injuries were not life-threatening and she was arrested and booked Sunday, Sgt. Maria Hawke, a Tucson police spokeswoman said in a news release.
The shooting happened just after 7 p.m. in a home in the 900 block of West Calle Colado, near West Valencia Road and South Interstate 19.
Morales was home alone with the children when the shooting occurred, investigators say. The boy was pronounced dead at the house, and the girl died at the hospital.
As of today, police are still investigating the murders and they have not released a motive for the shooting.
