A woman arrested in connection with the murder of her three children at their apartment in the San Fernando Valley has been embroiled in a tense custody dispute, according to the children’s father and court documents.
Liliana Carrillo, 30, was arrested in Tulare County on Saturday after fleeing the scene and leading law enforcement officials in a long-range chase in which she allegedly hijacked a van in Bakersfield, said authorities.
The children’s grandmother called police earlier after discovering the children – aged 3, 2 and 6 months – dead at their apartment complex in Reseda and their mother was gone, authorities said. Initial reports said the children had been stabbed, but authorities have not confirmed the cause of death.
Erik Denton, the father of the children – two girls and a boy – filed for custody on March 1, according to Tulare County Family Court documents online.
