West Sacramento police Sgt. Roger Kinney said the mother witnessed the killings, and that she, too, was a victim of domestic violence. "The officers are absolutely impacted, along with the firefighters, and certainly the family, the neighbors - this call is going to have quite a bit of emotion".

She didn't know the Hodges children personally, but could barely speak above a whisper as she thought about what happened to them. It's horrific, and it's very hard to deal with.

That said, it is understood two of the murdered children attended nearby Southport Elementary School.
