3 children found fatally stabbed in Los Angeles apartment

Mother arrested

The mother of three children - all under the age of 5 - found slain inside a Los Angeles apartment Saturday morning has been arrested, police said.

Liliana Carrillo, 30, was arrested in Tulare County, about 322 kilometres north of Los Angeles in the U.S. state of California, after the bodies were found by the children's grandma Saturday morning (local time).

She said she was stunned to learn that a mother was suspected of killing her children.

Liliana Carillo, the person of interest in a triple homicide of three children was taken into custody in the Ponderosa area of Tulare County Saturday afternoon, LAPD confirmed with 23ABC.

The LAPD tweeted the children appeared to be under 5 years old after a police spokesman initially said they were under the age of 3.

Officers said they got a call to an apartment in the neighborhood of Reseda to discover the three victims all dead inside.

The department received reports Carrillo was driving her vehicle and heading north Saturday on Interstate 5 when she got in an altercation in the Bakersfield area.

He said she might have gone to Tulare County to look for him but that he was away from home at the time.

Police said Carrillo might be driving a stolen silver Toyota pickup license J258T0 and heading north.

Officers said they weren't able to locate Carrillo for hours, but were tipped off after she was suspected of committing a carjacking in the Bakersfield area.

Cuevas met one of the children, a "sweet little girl" who asked if she could pet her Chihuahua mix.

Talking more about the family, Cuevas revealed that she never heard any "yelling" coming from the apartment and never saw police responding to the unit before Saturday.

Elizabeth Cuevas, who lives in an apartment above the one where the slayings occurred, said she knew the grandmother as a casual acquaintance.

"She was a flawless little angel", she said. "Somebody snapped there, and they snapped in the wrong direction", Cuevas told the police.

Residents in the neighborhood gathered outside to watch reporters conducting interviews, with children milling around in the grass.
