GERMANTOWN, Md. - Montgomery County Police say they've charged a second woman in connection with the deaths of two children in Germantown.
Early on Saturday police charged the children's mother, 28-year-old Zakieya Latrice Avery, with their deaths. She was also charged with attempted murder of her two other children. But later Saturday police said 21-year-old Monifa Sanford, who was found in the same Germantown home with Avery and her children, also faces the same charges.
Sanford and the two other children, ages 5 and 8, were hospitalized with injuries. Police say Sanford was arrested after being released from the hospital.
