MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Police in Memphis have arrested a woman after her two children were fatally stabbed.

City police spokeswoman Alyssa Moore said Thursday morning that the mother was taken into custody without incident following the stabbing Wednesday night.

Police said the woman might have mental health issues. She was not charged as of Thursday morning and her name was not released, nor were the names of the young victims.

Police responded to a call at 9:23 p.m. Wednesday and found a 6-year-old and a 23-month-old with stab wounds. Both were pronounced dead at Le Bonheur Children's Hospital
