SALINAS, Calif. -- California police are helping investigate after two kids, ages three and five, were found dead in a storage locker in Redding.

A third child, a young girl found severely abused, is fighting for her life after undergoing surgery.

Plumas County authorities have arrested 39-year-old Tami Joy Huntsman and a 17-year-old male Monday on charges of felony child abuse, torture and mayhem.

The investigation has led to an apartment complex in Salinas.

Prosecutors said the apartment belongs to an extended relative of the victims who may have had temporary custody of the children.
