Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón announced that a woman was charged today with killing her three children earlier this week in East Los Angeles.

“In an instant, three innocent children were taken from us and we are crestfallen,” District Attorney Gascón said. “Nothing is more heartbreaking than the tragic betrayal of a parent failing to protect their children.”

Sandra Chico (dob 7/27/92) was charged in case BA496609 with three counts each of murder and assault on a child causing death. She is expected to be arraigned today in Department 30 of the Foltz Criminal Justice Center.

On June 28, Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies were called to a home in the 600 block of Ferris Avenue. When they arrived, they found 3-year-old Mia R., 2-year-old Mason R., and 1-month-old Milan R. dead.

The case remains under investigation by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
