INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - A 23-year-old woman was arrested on a preliminary charge of murder after calling Indianapolis police to tell them she killed her roommate and then drove off with four children who were later found unharmed, according to authorities.

Officers were dispatched after receiving a call from Kiara Ciares-Quinones around 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department said in a press release. The officers arrested Ciares-Quinones after locating her and the children, two of whom were not hers, around 9:10 p.m, the release said.

The children didn’t appear to have any injuries and were checked medical personnel as a precaution. Ciares-Quinones’ children were placed in protective custody and the other children were returned to their mother, police said.

Before the arrest, officers went to Ciares-Quinones’ apartment on the northwest side of Indianapolis and found a woman who had been stabbed, according to police. The victim was pronounced dead at the scene.

Another woman at the scene said her two children, a 4-year-old and a 2-year-old, had been taken. She also told officers that Ciares-Quinones left with two of her own children, a 7-year-old boy and a 4-month-old girl, police said.

Indiana State Police detectives from the Missing Persons unit arrived and requested that an Amber Alert be issued for all four children, the police department said in the release.

Authorities haven’t released the victim’s identity pending notification of family members.

It wasn’t immediately known if Ciares-Quinones has an attorney.
