MIDDLETOWN, Ohio (AP) - Police say officers responding to a report of a possible dead child at a southwest Ohio motel found a pair of young siblings with serious injuries and arrested their mother and two other adults.

Middletown police say they found a 5-year-old child with life-threatening injuries Wednesday night, and while investigating, they discovered the child’s 6-year-old brother seriously hurt and hidden under a blanket.

Police didn’t release details about the children’s injuries or how they were hurt. Both were taken to hospitals.

Investigators say their 26-year-old mother was arrested on two counts each of child endangering and felonious assault. A 29-year-old female friend and her 56-year-old mother also staying in the room were jailed on the same charges.

It wasn’t immediately clear whether they have attorneys. They’re scheduled for arraignment Friday.
