Investigators Say Minnesota Mom Killed Her Two Children

Posted: Updated:

A medical examiner's report says a Minnesota mother killed her two young children before taking her own life.

Sherburne County sheriff's officials say autopsies determined the deaths of 7-year-old Josephine Shields and her 6-year-old brother Nolan are due to drowning and that their mother, Stephanie Shields, likely committed suicide.

Authorities say toxicology tests are pending in the death of the 35-year-old mother.  

A neighbor of the Shields family called 911 after discovering the bodies in their home in Zimmerman, Minnesota Easter Sunday.
