EAST HAVEN - Police in East Haven say they have charged a mother with murder after her two children were found dead in her home last week.

Police say Leroya Moore is also charged with reckless endangerment in the deaths of 8-year-old Daaron Moore and 6-year-old Aleisha Moore.

Investigators say the home was filled with natural gas, and Moore tried to commit suicide.

The children's father lives in Bridgeport. He has asked the public to help pay for the children's funeral.
