Philadelphia resident Sophia Hines, 40, has admitted to using bed sheets to suffocate her two children, ages 7 months and 3 years, to death, Metro reports.

According to an Associated Press report on FOX29, police charged Hines, a resident of Philadelphia's Frankford neighbohood, with two counts of premeditated murder after a call for help came from a home in Miramar in Broward County, Florida – a suburb of Fort Lauderdale – on Wednesday.

There is no word on for how long Hines and her children had been in Florida, however Metro reports she was there visiting a relative at the time of the crime. 

She gave no motive for the killings, Metro reports, and is being held without bail in county jail in Florida.
