Authorities rushed to a third-floor apartment at 247 Prospect St. and found the boys.

'All crime scenes are grisly.

A prosecutor said Sanders denied killing her children, but human blood was found on her hands, The Enterprise reports.

Plymouth District Attorney Timothy J. Cruz told reporters that Sanders' interview with police was "disjointed" but said investigators are not aware of Sanders having a history of mental illness. The boys were last seen by their grandmother on Saturday, prosecutors said. "They don't really have company". Officials say that Sanders made statements to investigators that can be construed as admissions.
