LOS ANGELES (AP) — Prosecutors say a Los Angeles mother has been charged with drowning her year-old daughter and trying to drown her 5-year-old daughter.

Deputy District Attorney Teresa Sullivan says 32-year-old Lorna Valle (VY’-ay) was charged with murder and attempted murder Friday and will be arraigned at a later date due to unspecified medical issues.

The girls’ father told police he found his wife trying to drown the girls in a tub when he returned home from a store Wednesday morning.

Firefighters answering a 911 call found the girls unconscious and not breathing and administered CPR.

The 1-year-old, Lindsay, died.

The 5-year-old, Marian, remains in critical condition in a coma at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.

Valle is being held on $1.5 million bail.

If convicted, she faces 50 years to life in prison.
