The Hall County Sheriff's Office has obtained warrants for the arrest of a Gainesville woman on charges of felony murder and aggravated assault in the Friday stabbing deaths of her two children at a home on Crescent Drive.

Hall County Sheriff's Office spokesman Derreck Booth said Saturday that deputies responded to the residence around 2 p.m. Friday when they found 5-year-old Mateo Miranda Jaramillo and 6-year-old Katherine Miranda Jaramillo dead and their mother, Berenice Jamarillo-Hernandez, seriously injured.

Investigators determined that the mother killed the two children with a knife and then harmed herself. She was transported from the scene for medical treatment.

Booth said 26-year-old Berenice Jaramillo-Hernandez will face two counts each of felony murder, malice murder and aggravated assault when her medical treatment is completed.

The investigation is still ongoing.
