Authorities say a Texas woman was killed by admitting to strangling her two young daughters.
Madison McDonald, 30, was linked to the deaths of 1-year-old Lillian Mae McDonald and 6-year-old Archer Hammond on Monday And was arrested. She was charged with two counts of murder of persons under the age of 10.
Allegedly, McDonald’s visited the Irvine Police Station at around 10pm on Tuesday and called 911 from the phone in the lobby, admitting that she had killed the children by “suffocating them.”
Officer Robert Reeves said: “This is how she believed in killing two daughters.”
The police were taken to the police hall and her home, where they confirmed that both girls were dead. The medical examiner will determine the cause of death in the future.
Reeves described McDonald’s as “very calm” in discussions with investigators. The authorities have not yet determined the motive for the alleged killing.

Reeves said: “This is a shocking incident, two children were murdered.” “We may never know why, because there is no definition or reason to justify the murder of two children.”
McDonald’s was detained in Irvine City Prison. Reeves said that in the past, authorities had asked her to go to her apartment.
