CASTLE ROCK (AP) – Police have arrested a 41-year-old mother in the deaths of her two children found at a home in Castle Rock.
Authorities say Kelli Murphy has been arrested on two counts of first-degree murder. Police found a 6-year-old girl and a 9-year-old boy in Monday morning in the house in the city about 30 miles south of Denver.
Their mother was transported to the hospital with unknown injuries and was released into police custody later Monday.
Police chief Tony Lane told Denver’s KUSA-TV that a woman called from the home to say she was committing suicide and told them there were children in the home.
