TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - A Tucson woman accused of fatally shooting her two children tells investigators that she attacked the youngsters after she had an argument with her boyfriend.

The Arizona Daily Star reports that a detective wrote in an interim complaint that 25-year-old Perla Morales said her boyfriend threatened to leave her and that she admitted to shooting her children on Saturday night.

Investigators say 17-month-old Richard Rosovich Jr. died at his home, while 4-year-old Emma Rosovich was pronounced dead shortly after at a hospital.

The detective who wrote the interim complaint says in the document that Morales cut her wrists during the incident.

Morales was booked on two counts of first-degree murder after she was released from a hospital where she was treated for her injuries.
