No bail for Tacony mother accused of murdering her toddlers

Stacey Smalls, the Tacony woman accused of murdering her twin toddlers and injuring her 4-year-old, is being held without bail.

Smalls was arrested last week after telling police she harmed her children. The young twins were found dead in the family’s home on the 6800-block of Ditman Street, and her daughter was rushed to the hospital to be treated for pills she’d ingested.

Smalls, who tried to harm herself, has been released from the hospital and is being held on charges that include murder and attempted murder.
