Mom arrested in slaying of 3 kids


A woman arrested in connection with the slaying of her three children at their San Fernando Valley apartment was embroiled in a tense child custody dispute, according to the children’s father and court documents. Liliana Carrillo, 30, was arrested Saturday in Tulare County after fleeing the scene and leading law enforcemen­t officers on a long-distance chase in which she allegedly carjacked a pickup truck in Bakersfiel­d, authoritie­s said. The children’s grandmothe­r had called police earlier after she discovered the children — ages 3, 2 and 6 months — dead at their apartment complex and their mother gone, authoritie­s said. Initial reports indicated the children had been stabbed, but authoritie­s have not confirmed a cause of death. Erik Denton, the father of the children — two girls and a boy — sought custody of them on March 1, according to Tulare County family court documents online.
