So horrific. An Arizona mother was arrested for allegedly drowning her twin sons in a bathtub. She reportedly attempted to kill a third child, but was stopped by family members. How awful.

Arizona mother, Mireya Lopez, 22, has admitted to police that she drowned her 2-year-old twin boys on Aug. 30. The mother also revealed that she tried to kill a third child, but thankfully, a family member stepped in before another young life was taken. This is beyond disgusting.

Avondale mom, Mireya Lopez, was arrested on suspicion of two counts of homicide and one count of attempted homicide after admitting she intentionally drowned her innocent 2-year-old twin sons in a bathtub, according to The Arizona Republic.

“Anytime you lose two small children, it’s tough. This situation is not going to be easy … but we’ll work through the case and find out what happened,” Avondale police Sgt. Brandon Busse told the press. “We’re still pretty early in the investigation. We don’t have any conclusions at this point.”

The mother reportedly came forward and owned up to the horrible deaths. “During the course of the police investigation, suspect Mireya Alejandra Lopez … stated to police that she intentionally drowned both of her twin boys in the bathtub,” officials said in a statement, according to NBC News. That’s not all. She also confessed to trying to kill a third child, but she was stopped by family and the baby didn’t suffer any injuries.

So tragic.

Our thoughts are with with those poor children and their family.
