Ariz. mom suspected of killing 2 kids in Calif.

SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) - An Arizona woman who was arrested on suspicion of killing her two children after she tried to crash her car into an electrical box outside a Home Depot had a propane tank in her vehicle.

Santa Ana police spokesman Cpl. Anthony Bertagna said Sunday the 42-year-old woman tied a rope or belt around her neck as paramedics tried to rescue her.

Bertagna says officers found her son and daughter dead in a hotel room after the woman told police where to find them.

The Scottsdale woman was released from a hospital into police custody on Saturday night.

Officers also obtained a search warrant for the hotel room late Saturday.

Bertagna says children's father, who lives in a different state, hasn't been notified.

Further details are being withheld until he can be found.
