Torrance: Mother Charged With Killing 3 Daughters

Posted: Updated:
Torrance, CA - (FOX 11 / AP) - A mother has been charged with stabbing to death her three young daughters, whose bloody bodies were found on a bed at her Southern California home.

Los Angeles County prosecutors say 30-year-old Carol Coronado was charged Friday with three counts of murder and with a count of attempted murder for allegedly trying to kill her mother.

The charges carry special allegations that make her eligible for the death penalty but prosecutors haven't decided yet whether to seek it.

Coronado has been hospitalized with self-inflicted wounds since Tuesday when sheriff's deputies were sent to a home at an unincorporated area near Torrance.

Their grandmother discovered the bodies of the three girls, ages 2, 16 months and 2 months.

There's no word on a motive for the killings.



From Gigi Graciette:

An obviously distraught Rudy Coronado returned to his Torrance home today.

The father of the three little girls who were killed yesterday sobbed as he walked in and was crying even harder when he walked out about ten minutes later.

One can only imagine the horror he saw inside what was his home on 223rd Street; the home where his babies died.

Now his home is officially a crime scene after police say his wife, the mother of his children, murdered them.

LA County Sheriff's Department identifying her as 30-year-old Carol Coronado.

According to police, it was Carol's mother who found her daughter standing naked and bloodied over her three little girls; a bloody kitchen knife in her hand.

All the girls, a two and a three year old along with a two month old were dead.

All of this happening while the children's father Rudy was outside in front of the house working on his car.

A neighbor and family friend described a heartbreaking scene as he rushed in and saw his three daughters dead.

"He was crying and screaming", neighbor Ashley Madrid said. "He kept on saying 'She killed my daughters. She killed my daughters.' And then he fell on his knees in the middle of the street, sobbing."

Carol Coronado was taken to the hospital where she was treated for superficial knife wounds. She was then released to the Sheriff's department where they tell us she will be booked for murder.

The triple murder of her own children.
