Brockton Mother Is Charged With Killing 2 Sons

Authorities say two brothers -- ages 5 and 8 -- were killed in Brockton, and their mother is facing murder charges in their deaths.

Police say the mother, Latarsha Sanders, 43, did not report the deaths for potentially as long as two days.

Investigators are not releasing any information on the motive.

Earlier Monday, the mayor's office contacted members of the Brockton City Council confirming the stabbing deaths of two children.

Brockton police and firefighters descended on Prospect Street after the deaths were reported at a three-story residential building.
