RIVERHEAD, N.Y. —- (WPIX) -- Authorities say a woman strangled her twin 2-year-old daughters, who were found in cardiac arrest inside a car at a Long Island park.

The girls’ cause of death was homicidal violence consistent with manual asphyxia, officials said during Tenia Campbell’s arraignment Wednesday.

“This is an extremely tragic case,” District Attorney Timothy Sini said. “Especially as a parent, the alleged actions of this defendant are incomprehensible. While nothing can bring those girls back, we will seek justice on their behalf.”

Kerriann Kelly, chief of the homicide bureau for the Suffolk County district attorney’s offices, told Newsday the twins were killed by having their mouths and noses covered.
