HOUSTON (AP) -

Police say a Southeast Texas woman who is pregnant with her fourth child has been charged in the deaths of her two infant sons.

Kristi-An Walker remained jailed Tuesday on murder and two other charges relating to the deaths, which occurred in April 2011 and June. Angleton police said the 20-year-old mother told investigators she became frustrated with them because they wouldn't stop crying.

Court records did not list an attorney for Walker.

Police Sgt. Kirk Coleman said authorities began investigating Walker after her 6-month old son died June 21. Police said the probe led investigators to the 2011 incident, in which her 4-month-old son died. She was indicted last week on murder and two counts of injury to a child.

Walker's 3-year-old son is now in foster care.
