A woman with a history of child neglect complaints was arrested after her two young boys were found dead in their apartment of malnutrition and dehydration, police said.
Police entered the apartment of Marie G. Robinson, 36, in the Seattle suburb of Kent after the children's paternal grandmother said she was unable to contact Robinson.
Officers found the bodies of Justice W. Robinson, 16 months, in a crib, and Raiden A. Robinson, 7 weeks, in a bassinet.
Another of Robinson's children, a 2-year-old boy, was hungry and skinny, said Officer Paul A. Petersen. He was checked by emergency technicians and placed in the care of the grandmother.
Robinson was arrested for investigation of child mistreatment and second-degree murder.
