A 22-year-old Georgia woman is facing murder charges for allegedly stabbing her two young children to death in a convenience store bathroom.
An investigator says a worker at a Food Mart in Augusta called 911 yesterday after hearing a scream while Michelle Hawes was in the bathroom with the boy and the girl. Sheriff's deputies knocked down the door and found Hawes on the floor, holding a steak knife and covered in blood.
The one-year-old boy and three-year-old girl were pronounced dead at the hospital.
Their mother is behind bars, charged with two counts of murder.
Store clerk Amanda Thomas says Hawes was a regular customer. She says she heard the children crying in the rest room, and when things, quote, "didn't sound right," she tried to get in and couldn't.
