A Texas mother was charged with killing her two young daughters, a report said, allegedly turning herself in and confessing to the murders Monday night.
Madison McDonald, 30, allegedly told authorities she sedated her children — 1-year-old daughter Lillian Mae McDonald and 6-year-old Archer Hammond — before smothering them to death, Fox 4 reported, citing police.
The Irving Police Department said McDonald entered their headquarters and used a lobby phone to call 911 to confess the crimes.
The mother, who lives alone with her two daughters, told police her children were abused, according to an arrest affidavit obtained by the outlet.
As a result, McDonald claimed she would do anything to protect her children, including “eliminating them,” the affidavit said.
Police say she showed up and used the lobby phone to call 911 and tell them she killed her two daughters, ages 1 and 6.
