Toddler siblings beaten to death after being put to bed by their mom

The deaths of two young toddlers who suddenly died hours after their mother put them to bed have both been ruled homicides.
Olivia and Micha Gee, who were aged two and three, suffered from asthma according to their 31-year-old mother Jordan Spencer.
However, autopsies on youngsters now reveal that in both deaths, violent blows to the torso have been found to be responsible.
The alarm was first raised by Spencer's boyfriend Novell Jordan who claimed he found the toddlers struggling to breathe minutes before they were declared dead at the Montefiore Medical Center in New York City. 
Police always suspected something was off from the moment they were called to the scene. 
The deaths of Olivia Gee, age two (left), and her three-year-old brother Micha (right) are being investigated as a homicide after an autopsy done on Olivia has revealed she was punched in the stomach.

'Two kids having asthma attacks at the same time and succumbing is virtually impossible,' a police source told the New York Post.
'It looks like this girl was punched in the stomach. It's a homicide investigation.'
Marks were found on the children's necks, although they may be from CPR which may have been administered or simply incidental, the Post reported. 
Detectives have been unable to talk to the kids' mother - who is a Blood Gang member - and who has apparently been so distraught she had to be hospitalized, according to NBC4 .
The young mom, a nurse practitioner, is now under psychiatric care, the Post reports.

'Our city is mourning the loss of two young children in a tragedy Monday in the Bronx,' Mayor Bill de Blasio said. 
'As a parent, it's very painful for me to think about the death of these two children and what the family is going through right now. The NYC Police Department and Administration for Children's Services will continue to investigate this tragedy.' 
Olivia and Mach  were put to sleep in the same bed in the same bedroom of their Van Cortlandt Park South home at around 8:30pm. 
At about 1:15am, the boyfriend woke up and went in to check on the kids. 
He noticed that their breathing was strained so he called 911. By the time paramedics arrived, both children were unconscious. 
The toddlers were rushed to Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx where Olivia was pronounced dead at 2:10am. Her brother died three minutes later. 
No charges have yet been filed.
