SACRAMENTO, CA – Police have arrested a man accused of killing three children in a Sacramento apartment during a domestic dispute.

There are a lot of unanswered questions regarding this story, but what I do know is that police were called to the Timbers Apartments on Wednesday night on a report of a domestic violence incident.

As police were on their way to the apartment, they received a second call informing them that there may be three dead children inside the apartment.

Once at the apartment, police found a woman who was “the victim of domestic abuse” and three of her children. Despite attempts by first-responders, all three of the children were pronounced dead at the scene.

The woman accused her husband, 33-year-old Robert Hodges, of murdering her children and that she was present when it happened.

Police immediately began searching Hodges, who had fled the scene on foot before police arrived. He was apprehended without incident a few hours later on I-80.

The manner in which the children died has not been released, but going by Sgt. Roger Kinney’s comments to reporters it was pretty bad.

“Something like this is very disturbing,” Kinney said. “The officers are absolutely impacted, along with the firefighters, and certainly the family, the neighbors — this call is going to have quite a bit of emotion. It’s horrific, and it’s very difficult to deal with. This is going to take not hours, not days, it’s going to take a long time to come to grips with what happened there.”

The ages and names of the children have not been released, and police have not revealed if the children were Hodges’ biological children or step-children.

    “Police immediately began searching Hodges, who had fled the scene on foot before police arrived. He was apprehended without incident a few hours later on I-80.”

    There should have been an incident.

  • jansav

    anytime you find three murdered children it is going to be “pretty bad” I don’t know how first responders can carry on after something like that.

  • Old Man Metal

    Not a job I could do.

  • IronWoobie

    Why is she alive? What kind of parent just stands by and lets her spouse kill all of her kids while she does nothing? Does no one have the instinct to snap out of cowardice and attack to protect their children anymore?

  • Robyn

    he managed to kill all 3 of them one at a time? ass would be fighting until the death to save at least 1 kid

  • Robyn

    thank you!!!..WTF was she doing?..letting him beat her ass and than letting him kill all the kids? what a waste

    This seems to be happening more frequently, or it could be the media’s new obsession, men killing their families. If I was this woman, I would just end my life. Could never live with that much devastation. He probably just tossed her around so he could torture her with this vile act. Sickening.

  • dammitall23

    Fuckhead *still* looks pissed.

  • itsknotme

    I guess it’s too late to buy him a $1 million dollar life insurance policy with me the beneficiary?

    I ABSOLUTELY agree with the sentiment, IronWoobie, and no doubt we seem to have become, collectively, a nation of self-absorbed cowards (speaking generally, here; there are definitely more than a few exceptions) – but something tells me that there are some kind of extenuating circumstances that prohibited her intervening. Tied up, restrained, whatever…

    Maybe I HAVE to believe that, because, deep down inside, I know that what I said about modern society is true, and it scares the hell out of me.

  • D S

    No – you can still do it.

    I am sure the inmates at whatever correctional facility he will be held in sans bail will be quite happy to help you arrange your early retirement.

  • Updated article with dad’s pic and pics of the kids.

  • Leslie Mashmann

    So little information, but a horrific ending. Horrible, horrible, horrible for Mom and anyone else that had to see that kind of scene. I do not understand what was going on with Mom – unless she was unconscious, what did she do to help her kids? And this man. whatever his relationship, the things I would love to see happen to him cannot be written.

  • Ann Roh

    I’m sorry, but the first move that my ex made toward my children would have been his obituary and my arrest for assault ending in death of perpetrator.

  • did the dad work for PP? cause that ill determine if a crime was even committed here or not lol

  • There’s no need to waste time or money on psychological evaluations or a lengthy trial.Throw this baby killer in the cage with the wolves of general population.Once word gets out what he did,inmates will brutally finish him off.Justice served.

  • ApplePie

    I have a monster inside me, kill my children, I’m going to kill you, victim of abuse or not, I’m coming at you with the force of hell with everything in reach. You not going to kill my kids while I watch, grab a knife, give him some.

  • Talkin

    I have to join the chorus of I would have died trying to kill him before he got to my children!

  • Elizabeth McCarthy

    The pic of those sweet happy children… He needs both fists removed at the wrist, one shoved down his throat and one up his ass. Then the standard for all criminals towards children. Skinned and dipped in salt water.

  • Defafan

    His mother and your mother should have both taken a trip to PP… Troll.

  • *West Sacramento

  • May the children R.I.P.

    men are on average 60% stronger than women. If a 5’10 180lb guy wants to hurt a 145lb 5’4 woman there is little stopping him.

  • DW

    Yup. Lets victim blame the woman who was just assaulted and forced to witness her children dying. Assholes. For all you know he’d beaten her so bad she couldn’t do anything. And lets not pretend a bunch of internet commenters are badass enough to fight to the death over anything but the last bag of Cheetos.

  • Sejanus

    Butcher him like the pig he is.

  • ApplePie

    Most anything I pick up can be deadly. Plus rage, it’d be a good fight. A lot of women these days are taking fighting classes. I’ve been a kick boxer for 12 years. Google females ninja kicking the fuck outta some dudes, fucking hilarious.

  • Not surprised. Domestic abusers of both genders make threats like this commonly

  • Fuck these people who kill kids because they’re mad about their relationship.
