Fairfield police say the mother accused of killing her twin daughters stabbed them with a samurai-style sword.

Monica McCarrick will be charged with murder. She is to be booked at Solano County jail after she is released from the hospital.

Police say McCarrick set her apartment on fire after she stabbed her daughters.

Neighbors kicked in the door, but were driven back by smoke and heat from the fire.

Investigators say they still have no idea what sparked her rampage.
