A vigil for the children is scheduled for 7 p.m. Thursday at Southport Elementary School at 2747 Linden Road in West Sacramento. While en route, police received another call that three children inside the home may have been killed. "This [investigation] is going to take not hours, not days, it's going to take a long time a long time to come to grips with what happened there".

On the way to the apartment, they got a second call, saying that the children in the apartment were possibly dead.

"Obviously, she's traumatized, and it's going to take some time to find out what's going on", Kinney said. Kinney said that she was a victim of domestic violence. Firefighters soon arrived and also tried to revive them.

Hodges is expected to be booked into the Yolo County Jail on three counts of murder and a felony domestic violence charge, reports the Sacramento Bee.

The children's names, ages and genders have not been released.

Hodges' grandmother, Irene Aiello, tells The Associated Press that relatives were unaware of any previous marital disputes.
