The two-year-old children had been placed unconscious on a bed.

Avondale Police Department released a statement saying Lopez had confessed to deliberately drowning the two youngsters.

She is also believed to have tried to drown their younger brother, but was stopped by family members. He wasn’t injured.

Reports suggest someone inside dragged them out after they were found submerged in the water.

First responders tried to resuscitate the youngsters before they were taken to separate hospitals in a critical condition.

The pair died a short time later.

The mother was captured by 12 News being escorted from the house in handcuffs.

Sergeant Brandon Busse insisted the investigation is ongoing.

No, there are no lessons to take from this. You might hear the term “senseless violence” often enough as to make it meaningless…well, this is senseless violence.
