A 42 year old woman in Arizona is in court for killing her 13- year- old autistic son and 9- year- old daughter after losing custody of them.
Authorities believe Marilyn Edge poisoned the two children. On Monday , she was charged with two counts of murder with special circumstances in the deaths of her daughter Faith and son Jaelen.
Edge lost custody of them on Wednesday last week in a Georgia case then texted her ex-husband, Mark Edge, two days later that she would bring the children back on Sunday, his attorney Marian Weeks said. The children were found Saturday in a Santa Ana hotel room dead.
Mark Edge was informed about the death of the children early Sunday by Atlanta police and was taken to a hospital for duress.
