An Arizona woman is facing murder charges after her two young children were found dead in a vehicle in Superior on Monday night, authorities said.
PCSO says a 2-year-old boy and 10-month-old girl were found strapped to vehicle seats inside a auto Monday night near US 60 and Mary Drive.
Twice, the police visits led to reports of potential child neglect or abuse involving the toddler and infant.
Authorities have not released the children's cause of death, or identified the victims.
The Pinal County Sheriff's Office did not immediately disclose what evidence was found. "There were no legal grounds to remove the children from the parent's custody". The names of the children were not immediately made public. She was booked into the Pinal County Jail on Tuesday, jail records show. Lamb said Velasquez had called police.
There was no immediate information available on the circumstances of their deaths.

A spokesman for Manafort, who is prevented by a court-imposed gag order from talking to the media, declined to comment. No United States president has ever done so but governors have . "This is all my personal opinion, and I stand by it".
In response to a request from CBS News' Crimesider about previous contact with the family, a spokesman for the Department of Child Safety said in an email Velasquez was investigated in October 2016 and January 2018, both times on reports that she was leaving the children with her grandmother.
Lamb said there are numerous small, economically depressed mining towns like Superior around central Arizona's Pinal County.
They were still strapped in auto seats inside when police arrived.
Broken wooden furniture, cardboard boxes and a rusted barbeque grill littered the brown, dried up grass in the front yard.
Residents of the community established in the 1800s to support a copper mine include retirees and former mining workers.
