A MEM accused of drowning her two children in a bath would make her husband a shocking confession.
The investigation is still in its early stages, but deputies have said the crime was intentional.
The mother, identified as 25-year-old Courtney Williams, was arrested in California on Thursday on suspicion of murder, according to ABC 10 News.
The children were identified as five-month-old Holden and his two-and-a-half-year-old older brother Ronin.
Deputies shared that the children’s father called their office on Thursday afternoon after he returned home for lunch.
Law enforcement said Williams confessed to her husband that she “hurt the children.”
After looking around the house, deputies say the father found them in the bath.
The children were pronounced dead at the scene after failed attempts by CPR and other efforts to revive them.
“The tragic loss of five-month-old Holden and his two-and-a-half-year-old brother Ronin reverberates throughout our department and in the community,” Yuba County Sheriff Wendell Anderson said in a statement.
“There are no words to adequately describe the grief we currently feel for the family.”
Williams was shown in handcuffs wearing pink sweatpants without shoes in video received by the news.
Neighbors said they were shocked and disturbed by the arrest and charges.
“She was just, no expression, no tears, no nothing,” said neighbor Charlene Smith.
Neighbors shared that the family had moved to the neighborhood in the past few months and seemed friendly but private.
They said they regretted not being able to pick up warning signs, such as not hearing children laugh.
Neighbor Krista Taraha said her son once had playgrounds with Ronin and that she is worried about telling her children why the two can no longer play.
“My son will probably ride his bike there and sit by his yard every morning, screaming at him like he does every day,” Taraha told the publication.
