GERMANTOWN, Md. (AP) — Montgomery County Police have released 911 calls related to the deaths of two children in Maryland, deaths police attributed to two women who believed they were performing an exorcism

The release of the recordings Monday comes two days after police charged Monifa Sanford and Zakieya Latrice Avery with killing two of Avery's children, ages 1 and 2. The women are also facing attempted murder charges for injuring the children's siblings, ages 5 and 8.

Police were called to the Germantown home where the women lived Thursday when a 911 caller reported a child unattended in a vehicle. By the time police arrived, the child was gone. They returned Friday when a neighbor called 911 after noticing a car with the door open and a knife what appeared to be blood.
