Mother says she killed 3 kids found in Phoenix home

Police 3 children pronounced dead inside Phoenix home

The mother of three young children found dead in a Phoenix home Monday night has been arrested, police announced Tuesday morning.

Police say the mother, 22-year-old Rachel Henry, told officers the children had been sick before later admitting to killing them.

A relative who lives at the house called police late Monday, and officers found the children in a living room, authorities said.

Henry has been booked into jail on three counts of first-degree murder, police said. It was not immediately clear if she had an attorney. But there is new construction going up all around, with a golf course and several housing developments of single-family homes priced at more than $500,000.

Fortune said investigators are still interviewing the 30-year-old father and the 49-year-old relative, who also lives at the home.


"This is one of the most hard calls that officers and fire respond to, ones dealing with young ones who have lost their lives", Phoenix Police Sgt. Mercedes Fortune said.

Police say it's too early to determine how the children died.

The 911 call came from the home, said Fortune, adding she didn't know who made the call.

"The investigation is still ongoing, there's still a lot of collection and gathering of evidence that still needs to be done", said Mercedes Fortune, with the Phoenix Police Department.
