Authorities say a father in suburban Los Angeles is suspected of killing four of his six children with carbon monoxide, using a charcoal grill that burned overnight in
A fifth child is not expected to survive. A sixth child, and the father, Adair Garcia, are in critical condition.
Sheriff´s Lieutenant Don Bear says the case is being treated as a multiple homicide.
Deputy David Cervantes says Adair and the childrens´ mother had a domestic dispute and the woman left the house about a week ago.
The youngsters´ grandmother arrived this morning to baby-sit, then called paramedics.
Deputies initially said the grill might´ve been used to warm the house in Pico Rivera, ten miles southeast of Los Angeles. But circumstances led them to believe Garcia wanted to kill the children and himself.
