LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3.com) -- Metro said this afternoon that a mother killed her two children with a knife and then turned the knife on herself in their far southwest valley home, calling it a double murder-suicide

Dead are 40-year-old Hae Chong Serra, 11-year-old Hope Stream Serra and 9-year-old Cory Yoon Serra. They were found in a home in the 10000 block of Wolf Pack Lane.

According to a Metro news release, a caller indicated she arrived at her sister's residence and found her sister and her children deceased inside the residence at about 1:30 p.m. Friday.

The release did not indicate an estimated time of the deaths.

The Clark County coroner's office said the official cause of death for the mother was exsanguination because of multiple stab and incision wounds with a ruling of suicide.

The official cause of death for both of her children was homicide as the result of multiple incision and stab wounds.
