South Carolina authorities say a mother who claimed her children drowned when their car careened into a river has been charged with murder after confessing to suffocating the toddlers and then faking the accident.

Shaquan Duley told police she was distraught after a dispute with her own mother and killed her children by putting her hand over their mouths.

He says Duley then strapped the children into her car and drove it into a river Monday morning.

Duley is to be arraigned Wednesday.
