A Texas girl who confessed to smothering her two young daughters to departure was charged with capital murder, police said.
She's charged with two counts of capital murder of someone under ten years old.
McDonald supposedly visited an Irving police station about 10 p.m. and called 911 from a telephone within the lobby to declare that she murdered the children by"smothering them" authorities said Tuesday.
Physicians were sent to the authorities lobby along with also her residence where they affirmed both women were dead. A medical examiner may determine a cause of death at a subsequent date.
Reeves explained McDonald as"very calm" during her conversation with researchers. Police haven't determined a motive for the alleged killings.
"That is a dreadful episode where two kids were killed," Reeves said. "We may never know why because there is not likely to be a definition or motive that would justify the murder of just two little children."
McDonald has been held in the Irving City prison. Authorities had been known to her flat previously, Reeves said .
