MONCKS CORNER, S.C. (AP) -- Authorities in South Carolina say a woman has confessed to killing her twin nine-month-old sons because they were crying in her bed.
Police say the 20-year-old mother told them she went back to sleep after smothering the boys.
Lakeia White has been charged with homicide by child abuse. Officials say it appears the boys had been asphyxiated.
A minister who baptized the twins two weeks ago says they were "beautiful kids." The Reverend Willis Goodwin says their mother was a "very, very quiet and orderly girl."
The killings took place in Moncks Corner, which is 30 miles north of Charleston.
