TORRANCE, Calif. (AP) -- Authorities say they've arrested a woman on suspicion of killing her three young daughters at a Southern California home.
But there's no immediate word on a motive.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department says deputies were called to an unincorporated area near the Los Angeles suburb of Torrance shortly after 5 p.m. Tuesday.
When they arrived, family members told them that a mother had killed her children.
Authorities say inside a home the deputies found three girls, ranging in age from 3 years old to 2 months old.
They were pronounced dead at the scene. Their mother was arrested on suspicion of murder, taken to a hospital for examination and then to a sheriff's station.
Her name hasn't been released.
