A Texas mother who called 911 from a suburban Dallas police department to admit she had killed her two young daughters has been charged with two counts of capital murder, police said Tuesday.

Madison McDonald, 30, told Irving police officers she had ‘sedated and smothered’ her children Archer Hammond, 6, and one-year-old Lillian Mae McDonald.

Police said McDonald walked into the Irving Police Department at about 10pm Monday and used the phone in their lobby to call 911.

She told dispatch officers that she had ‘sedated’ Archer and Lillian before tucking them into bed and smothering them to death.

When officers arrived in the police lobby, McDonald began ‘talking about her how her kids were abused and that she would do anything to protect her children – including “eliminating them”’, according to a police affidavit. 

Officers then went to the Anthem Apartments where McDonald lives and found both girls dead in separate bedrooms.

McDonald was then arrested and charged with the murder of her two daughters. 

Reeves said they were still trying to determine what led to McDonald killing her children.  

‘We might not ever know the why because there’s not going to be a definition or a reason that would ever justify the murder of two small children,’ Reeves said. 

McDonald was being held in Irving jail on no bond. Jail records do not list an attorney for McDonald who could comment on the allegations.
