Brockton police arrest mother of two children found dead in apartment

BROCKTON, Mass. (WPRI/AP) — Police have arrested the mother of the two young children who were found dead in Brockton Monday.

Latarsha Sanders, 43, is being charged with two counts of murder.

The two brothers, one 5 years old and the other 8 years old, were found at a home on Prospect Street. The Plymouth District County Attorney Timothy Cruz said they were found with multiple stab wounds.

“We need to make sure we get to the bottom of it, as best as we can, and as quickly, that’s what we’re trying to do,” Cruz said.

The investigation is still active and ongoing. Sanders is expected to face a judge on Tuesday.
