The triple-homicide happened sometime after 9 p.m.at the Timbers Apartments on Touchstone Place in West Sacramento.
Police say three children were killed inside an apartment near Sacramento and that their mother's husband was arrested hours later. The lady was additionally the mother of the three youngsters, be that as it may, police cannot yet say the kids are Hodges' natural kids or step kids. First responders were then dispatched to the home, and although they attempted life-savings measures on the children, it was too late.
The couple had been married more than a dozen years and had an 11-year-old boy, a nine-year-old girl and another boy, born in January, said Irene Aiello of West Sacramento. Police say the woman was in a relationship with the suspect, but it is unknown if he was the father of the children.
Several news organizations are identifying the suspect as Robert Hodges, 33, of West Sacramento.
"Obviously, she's traumatized, and it's going to take some time to find out what's going on", Kinney said of the mother.

Mr Goodfellow said he had "no idea" about any Security Intelligence Service probe, while Mr English did not comment. If you define those cadets or students as spies, yes, then I was teaching spies .
"Something like this is very disturbing", Kinney said.
Kinney says neighbors called 911 to report a domestic violence incident involving Hodges and his wife and that as officers were en route, a second call came in reporting the killings. It's horrific, and it's very hard to deal with.
Hodges was taken to the Yolo County Jail. By the time police arrived at the home, Holdges had already fled.
The names and ages of the children were not immediately released, nor was their cause of death.
Hodges is scheduled to be arraigned on Monday (18 September), Kinney said.
