PHOENIX – A Phoenix woman accused of stabbing her three young sons to death and wounding herself is behind bars after leaving a hospital.
The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office says 29-year-old Octavia Renee Rogers was booked into a jail Sunday on suspicion of three counts of first-degree murder.
Police say officers found the bodies of her sons, ages 2 months and 5 and 8 years, in a closet Thursday. Rogers' brother had called 911 after she locked herself in a room and stabbed herself in the abdomen and neck.
It's not immediately known if Rogers has an attorney who could comment on the allegations. She's being held in lieu of $1 million bond.
Older sister Voniticia Nickerson has called Rogers a devoted mother and said she saw no signs Rogers was troubled.
