In the US state of Arizona, Avondale mother deliberately drowns her twin sons

Twenty two year old, Mireya Alejandra Lopez, was arrested on Sunday after her two year old twin boys were rushed to different Arizona hospitals.

 

Police say that Lopez told officers “that she intentionally drowned both of her twin boys in the bathtub.”

 

According to authorities the grandmother of the twins called 911 a little before noon. When emergency personnel arrived on the scene the twins were on a bed in a bedroom.

 

Reports cited that Lopez stated to investigators that she also attempted to drown another child in the home but she was stopped by family.

 

A third child belonging to Lopez was not injured.

 

Sam Avitia, the father of the twins, said Lopez suffered from depression and anxiety but had never shown any violent tendencies. He was scheduled to visit the boys on Friday.

 

Lopez is charged with two counts of homicide and one count of attempted homicide.
