(AA) – A 35-year-old mother has been arrested in the U.S. state of Michigan after officials found the bodies of two of her children inside a chest freezer, local media has reported.

The frozen bodies of a 14-year-old girl and an 11-year-old boy were discovered Tuesday in an apartment complex in Detroit by bailiffs carrying out an eviction order for non-payment of rent, according to The Detroit News.

It remains unclear how long the bodies, which were inside a bag, had been in the freezer.

Two other children belonging to the woman, aged 11 and 17, were found at a neighbor’s home and placed in protective custody, according to Fox News.

Detroit Police Chief James Craig was quoted by Local 4 radio and online news service as saying: “It was during that eviction process that they discovered two young children in a freezer … they were inside a bag and appeared to be frozen.”

“A terrible find, this afternoon.” 

The mother of the children, who police did not identify, had not been charged by prosecutors as of Tuesday night.

Neighbors told local media the woman was unemployed, having money problems and had got behind with her rent payments.
