A California mother confesses to killing her 12-year-old daughter and twins, 8, with the help of her teenage son


A California mother has admitted killing her three children – with the help of her 16-year-old son.

Angela Don Flores, 38, told authorities that she killed her daughter Natalie, 12, and her twin boy, Nathan and Kevin, 8.

The Los Angeles Police Department said Flores is being held on $6 million bail. Her son and alleged partner are being held without bail at Sylmar Jonville Hall on one count of murder.

She was a mother of four who previously lived in the Kansas City area and worked for a construction company there, according to her Facebook.

Police responded to the Woodland Hills home just before 8 a.m. on Mother’s Day. Paramedics declared Flores’ children dead at the scene.

The night before the murders, a scream was heard, “My family is abusing me!” She then walked to her next door neighbor’s front yard, opened the Bible and lit candles, according to another neighbor.

Paramedics arrived there around midnight and put Flores on a stretcher. She allegedly tried to free herself and shouted, “Where is my Bible? Where is my Bible?”

It remains unclear what happened between the mother’s outburst and finding the children the next day.
