Two twin 2-year-old boys were declared dead after they were found in a bathtub Sunday afternoon, authorities said.

She also said that she attempted to drown another child, but was stopped by family, police said.

The mother has been identified as 22-year-old Mireya Alejandra Lopez.
She is being charged with two counts of homicide and one count of attempted homicide.

The pair died a short time later. 
The mother was captured by 12 News being escorted from the house in handcuffs. 
Sergeant Brandon Busse says the investigation is ongoing.
