A mom and her three small children were killed in a possible stabbing inside their Georgia home overnight, according to a new report.

Jerrica Spellman, 29, and her children — who range in age from less than a year old to 3 years old — were killed in their South Columbus home within the Elizabeth Canty Apartment complex Wednesday evening, authorities told local station WTVM 9.

“Officers received information to come into this area concerning possible individuals being deceased,” Major Hawk of the Columbus Police Department told the station. “Upon arrival [the officers] did find four individuals that are deceased.”

Police are searching for a person of interest, but have yet to name any suspects in the slaying, the outlet reported.

The bodies of all four victims will be sent to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation crime lab for autopsies later this week, according to Hawk.

“We are in the preliminary investigation stages, trying to figure out what happened,” Hawk said Wednesday evening. “We’ll be here pretty much for a long night.”

Meanwhile, he’s requesting that anyone with relevant information call 911 or the Columbus Police Department.
