New Jersey authorities said that the lifeless bodies of two small children were discovered in the backseat of their mother’s car Tuesday.
The woman was behind the wheel of a car that went off a Hillsborough road prompting troopers to investigate.
Inside, the bound and lifeless bodies of a 7-year-old girl and a 10-month-old boy were discovered in their car seats. They were declared dead at the scene.
Their mom, Yuhwei Chou, 36, was arrested on murder charges and had reportedly no visible injuries. Local news outlets said that detectives had strong evidence to believe the mother was behind the crime.
An official cause of death remains unclear pending autopsy results, police said.
