(ELKHART, IN) An Indiana woman has been charged in the murder of her two young children after they were found dead Monday night.
An Amber Alert for Liliana Hernandez, 7, and Rene Pasztor, 6, was issued late Monday morning with police saying they had been kidnapped by their mother Amber Pasztor, 29.
Hours after that alert, police say Pasztor went to the Elkhart Police Department, flagged down an officer and said the children were dead. Sgt. Chris Snyder says they were found in the backseat of her vehicle.
The coroner says the children died from asphyxia. Pasztor has been charged with two counts of murder.
The body of a man found near the children’s home has been identified as 66-year old Frank Macomber. He died of a gunshot wound and the death has been ruled a homicide. Police believe Macomber was with the mother when the children were kidnapped.
