PHILADELPHIA (AP) - A Philadelphia woman has been arrested on murder and other charges in the shooting deaths of her two young daughters and their father.
Police say on Wednesday that 28-year-old Damyrra Jones is facing three counts of murder, two counts of child endangerment and a count of possessing instruments of crime.
Officers called to a row home in the city's northeast section shortly before 10 p.m. Monday found a 38-year-old man dead and a 4-year-old girl and a 10-month-old girl wounded. Police said 4-year-old Maxillie Alcindor and 10-month-old Damaya Alcindor died soon afterward at a hospital. Their father's name wasn't immediately released.
Jones was critically wounded by a gunshot authorities believe was self-inflicted.
