LAS VEGAS — A county official says a mother accused of killing her children in suburban Las Vegas before she was arrested in Arizona was a family services worker. 

Jovan Trevino remained jailed Thursday in Kingman after telling a judge Wednesday she wouldn’t contest her transfer in custody to Nevada to face murder charges. 

Authorities say the bodies of her 4-year-old son and 1-year-old daughter were found Monday in separate bathtubs in a home in Henderson where police say a note said Trevino intended to kill herself. 

She was arrested late Tuesday at a hospital in Bullhead City, where authorities say she told staff members she had killed her children.
