MEMPHIS, TN -

(WMC-TV) - The two children, who police say were stabbed by their mother Wednesday night, died at Le Bonheur Children's Hospital, according to Memphis police.

The 6-year-old and 23-month-old were both sent to the hospital once law enforcement arrived on the scene at 230 Tillman Street near Tillman Cove.

Neighbor Veronica Skinner has seen the suspect numerous times before.  However, she never saw any signs that would indicate she would harm her children.

"I think it's terrible and I think time is drawing near. I think that's real terrible," stated Skinner.

One of the children received CPR on the scene before being taken to the hospital. Both children died about an hour later.

The mother accused of murdering her two small children is officially charged with the crimes. Click here to read more about the charges and the mother.
