A MOM has admitted killing her three young kids before reportedly screaming about the Bible and lighting candles in her neighbor's yard in a bizarre ritual.
Angela Flores, 38, told cops she killed her 12-year-old daughter and eight-year-old twin boys after they were found dead inside their house in Woodland Hills, Los Angeles.
The kids have been named locally as Natalie, Nathan and Kevin, according to CBS News.
Los Angeles Police Department said Flores admitted to murdering the children with the help of a 16-year-old – who is understood to be her son, Fox 11 reports.
In a statement, cops said the killer mom is being held on $6million bail on three murder charges.
Her teenage accomplice is being held without bail at Sylmar Junevile Hall on a single count of murder.

Police raced to the family's home shortly before 8am on Mother's Day to reports of an assault with a deadly weapon.
Paramedics declared Flores' children dead at the scene.
Neighbors said Flores was acting erratically the night before the gruesome discovery.
Prisila Canales, who lives two houses down from the scene, told the Los Angeles Times she heard Flores screaming: "My family is abusing me!"
Canales said the mother walked into her next-door neighbor's yard for a solo religious ceremony.

The neighbor said she saw the woman, who moved into the house two or three months ago, open a Bible and light candles.
“The screaming you heard – you knew she was not OK,” Canales said.
"I can still hear her screaming."
Cops were told about the mom's odd behavior, and paramedics arrived and put her on a stretcher.
But Canales said the woman tried to wrangle herself free and yelled: “Where’s my Bible?"
Officials have yet to determine what happened between the mother's outburst and the children being found dead the next day.
According to CBS2, a neighbor said an older child woke up on Sunday morning and found his siblings dead.
He ran to a neighbor's house to get help before he was arrested, law enforcement sources told Fox 11.
