Arraignment postponed for woman charged with drowning daughters
Instead, Lorna Valle's arraignment was postponed until April 19, according to the Los Angeles County district attorney's office.
The girls' father told police he returned home Feb. 15 and discovered that his wife had tried to drown the girls in a tub.
One witness said they heard the father shouting, "My babies! My babies!" Other witnesses said the father had to be restrained as he tried to confront his wife, who was emotionless with an empty gaze.
Prosecutors have not decided whether to seek the death penalty.
