SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) — Southern California authorities have charged a woman with killing her two children, who were supposed to have been returned to their father in Georgia during the weekend.
Orange County prosecutors say 42-year-old Marilyn Edge was charged Monday with two counts of murder with special circumstances. She is eligible for the death penalty if convicted.
Edge is accused of murdering her 9-year-old daughter Faith and 13-year-old son Jaelen on Saturday. Their bodies were found in a Santa Ana hotel room.
The cause of death has not been released.
An attorney representing Edge's ex-husband says the suspect lost custody of her children last week and was expected to return them to Georgia on Sunday.
