42-year-old Marilyn Edge is facing two charges of murder after allegedly killing her two children at a Hampton Suites in Santa Ana.
Cops first encountered Edge after she ran her car in to an electrical box outside of a Home Depot in Costa Mesa. She had a propane tank in the vehicle that police believe she thought would explode.
After police got her out of the car, she told them her two dead children were at the nearby hotel. When they arrived on scene, they found the bodies of a 10-year-old girl and 13-year-old boy.
Edge is being held without bail and is due in court on Tuesday.
