The Arizona mother accused of killing her three young children sang to them as she killed them, with her oldest child fighting her to save his little sister, say police.
Rachel Henry, 22, of Phoenix, was arrested and charged with three counts of first-degree murder after allegedly killing her children, aged 3 years; almost 2 years; and 7 months, on Monday night, the City of Phoenix Police Department says in a statement.
Henry allegedly confessed to killing son Zane Henry, 3, and daughters Miraya Henry, almost 2, and Catalaya Rios, 7 months, say police.
While “wrestling on top of her,” AZ Family reports, “Rachel felt the one-year-old female’s breathing was obstructed but continued to impede her breath by placing her hand over the 1-year-old female’s mouth.”
The child struggled and began kicking her, prompting 3-year-old Zane to yell at her “in an attempt to get her to stop,” the report says.
He then began “punching her to no avail,” it says.
She knew the child was dead “when she stopped kicking,” it says.
Zane was next. After a relative came over and “interrupted her” by playing with him, she took him into another room.
After placing him on the floor, she “straddled him with one of her legs and placed her hand over his nose and mouth.”
While Henry allegedly held the boy down, she began “singing to the 3-year-old male as he was scratching her chest and pinching her while she placed her hand over his nose and mouth “to smother him until he died,” the report says.

ARASOTA, Fla. — A pilot was temporarily blinded while trying to land at a Florida airport after a man pointed a laser directly in his eyes, local police said.
Manatee County Sheriff’s deputies responded just after 7:40 p.m. Wednesday to the Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport for a report of a laser being pointed at planes making their approach to land.
While police were trying to locate the suspect, he also used the laser on them, officials said. The suspect was located on a forklift just east of the airport.
Police surrounded the individual, later identified as Charlie James Chapman Jr., 41, and he grabbed a hammer and made striking motions toward deputies. A taser was deployed, and police found a laser pointer in Chapman’s pocket.

Britain’s Prince Charles became a Twitter trend when he appeared to snub Vice President Mike Pence by completing ignoring him during a receiving line at a Holocaust remembrance event. You can watch video of the moment, which has gone viral on Twitter, later in this article. However, the VP’s press secretary revealed that the prince and vice president spoke before and after the prince’s remarks, disputing the narrative.
Although the British Royal Family famously stays out of politics, some people thought Prince Charles’ snubbing of Pence was purposeful. That’s not clear, of course, but the video caused Pence critics to go wild on Twitter with praise for the heir to the British throne.
BEIJING (AP) – China has decided to lock down three cities that are home to more than 18 million people in an unprecedented effort to try to contain a deadly new viral illness that has sickened hundreds and spread to other cities and countries in the Lunar New Year travel rush.
Normally bustling streets, shopping malls, restaurants and other public spaces in Wuhan were eerily quiet Thursday. Barriers blocked the entrance to the city’s train station, and the airport, ferries, subways and buses were also halted.
China closed off the city of more than 11 million people, and similar measures will take effect Friday in the nearby cities of Huanggang and Ezhou.
The virus that emerged in Wuhan in December has killed 17 people.
