Los Angeles, Sep 10: A mother has been arrested for allegedly slashing her two daughters' throat inside their Los Angeles home.
Antonia Gomez was also charged with the special circumstance of multiple murders, making her eligible for the death penalty if convicted.
Prosecutors alleged Gomez stabbed her 11-year-old daughter Edith Moreno and her 17-year-old sister Diana Moreno on Sept 2 before cutting her own arms.
Relatives told the Los Angeles Times the 37-year-old mother recently lost her job, could not make mortgage payments on her Sun Valley home, and had been hospitalized for stress.
Gomez also has a 14-year-old daughter who was not at the home at the time of the killings.
