Three children found dead inside West Sacramento apartment

Three children were killed inside a California apartment and the mother's husband has been arrested in connection to their deaths, authorities said Thursday.

The suspect, Robert Hodges, 33, of West Sacramento, was captured without occurrence by CHP on I-80 around midnight.

Hodges, who was married to the children's mother, was detained without incident.

The children were murdered sometime after 9pm PT (5am BST) at the Timbers Apartments on Touchstone Place, according to KCRA.

More details will be coming soon.

He says the mother witnessed Hodges kill the children, and that she was a victim of domestic violence.

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.
