The Palm Bay Police in the USA reports that it has arrested a 33-year-old woman, Jessica Lacey McCarty, of Florida, for allegedly murdering her three children in a frenzy of attack.

Six-month-old infant baby and her 6-year-old son, Philip, were found strangled while 7-year-old daughter, Laci, was drowned in what has been described as a mental trauma caused by the use of drugs.

McCarty chose to remain in custody under a special medical watch when she appeared in court while Palm Bay police spokeswoman Yvonne Martinez, said she will be charged with three counts of murder.
