Clancy was hospitalized along with her 7-month-old infant boy after crews were called to a house on Summer Street around 6 p.m.
Officers responded to the residence after police say her husband reported an attempted suicide that involved Clancy trying to jump from a window at the home.
When they entered the building, officers said they found two children, a 5-year-old girl and a 3-year-old boy, both unconscious and with obvious signs of trauma. The children were taken to a hospital, where they were later pronounced dead.
“Preliminarily, it appears the children were strangled,” Cruz told reporters.

In a news conference, Cruz said Clancy was treated at the scene at the time and as of Wednesday afternoon, was still hospitalized.
He said information gathered by law officials led to them finding probable cause and that his office was seeking an arrest warrant to formally charge the mother.
