Police in Detroit made a grim discovery Tuesday as the bodies of a girl and boy were found in a deep freezer at an apartment complex there.

According to a story from The Detroit Free Press, the children’s mother was arrested after the bodies were discovered by court officers carrying out an eviction notice.

The children, a girl thought to be 14, and a boy believed to be 11, were found wrapped in a plastic bag.

The Associated PressĀ  reported:

The children’s mother was not in the apartment when the court officers or police arrived.

“One of the community members here … approached our officers and advised that they knew where the parent was located,” Craig said.

The children’s mother was found in a nearby apartment and questioned. She was arrested later Tuesday. Her name has not been released.

Two of the woman’s other children, ages 11 and 17, were found at a neighbor’s home and placed in protective custody.

Neighbor and friend Tori Childs said she hadn’t seen the two dead children in about a year.

“I haven’t seen them since they were playing with my step-kids,” Childs said.

An autopsy is scheduledĀ  for the children.
