COMPTON, Calif. (AP) _ A Southern California woman charged with stabbing to death her three young daughters has pleaded not guilty to murder -- and to the attempted murder of her own mother.
Prosecutors say 30-year-old Carol Coronado was arraigned Thursday. She was charged last week but the hearing was postponed while she was hospitalized with self-inflicted wounds.
Prosecutors haven't decided whether to seek the death penalty.
Authorities say Coronado killed her daughters, ages 2, 16 months and 2 months, on May 20 at the family home near the Los Angeles suburb of Carson.
A neighbor says the woman's mother found Coronado and the children on a bloody bed.
No motive for the killings has been released.
