Grandmother arrested after two children found dead inside northwest side home

TUCSON –  A 55-year-old woman is facing homicide charges after her two grandchildren were found dead inside her Northwest side home.

According to PCSD, the home is located in the 2400 block of W. Kessler Place near La Cholla Boulevard and Ruthrauff Road.

Officials said they found 8-year-old twins Jaden and Jorden Webb shot to death on Thursday afternoon.  Their grandmother, 55-year-old Dorothy Flood, was found unresponsive, after attempting to overdose.  She was taken to the hospital for treatment, then arrested.

Flood appeared in video court on Friday night, where a judge set a $250,000 cash bond.  Flood’s next court appearance is scheduled for April 15.

The news has shocked neighbors. Ruth Parra has lived in the neighborhood for more than 50 years.

“You are breathless when something like this happens, you think of grandchildren, great-grandchildren,” Parra said.

Another neighbor said when she first heard about this incident she immediately called home to check on her 20-year-old daughter.

“Make sure she had everything locked up because I was worried about the security, safety for her. It’s crazy. I just don’t know what happened and I feel so sad for the family,” she said.
