Carol Coronado, 30, was arrested after several knives were found at the scene where she allegedly killed her three daughters. The incident happened in Southern California, CBS News reports. It clearly appears she allegedly stabbed them. The children were between two months to three years old, according to Los Angeles County Sheriff Lt. Dave Coleman.

When the 30-year-old mother was taken into custody by police, she was seen covered in blood wearing a blanket. She was booked Tuesday on suspicion of murdering her children. She was transferred to a hospital for evaluation then to the sheriff's station. Carol Coronado made no statement.

By Wednesday detectives had cleared out the crime scene. The suspect's mom had called authorities. When they arrived, family members told them she had killed her children.

"She was full of blood on her face and arms," neighbor Ashley Madrid said.

Madrid was informed by the suspect's mother that she called earlier that day telling her she was going crazy. The girls' father was working across the street on a car when Madrid found Carol Coronado and the three children in a pool of blood on the bed.

"I saw when they were bringing him out," Madrid recalled. "He [the father] was crying. He was crying, 'She killed my daughters!"
