CANNON BEACH, Oregon (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A Washington woman is now in custody, accused of killing her 2-year-old daughter and leaving her teenager in critical condition.

Police arrested Jessica Smith near Cannon Beach, Oregon late Sunday.

She is the only suspect in the murder of her 2-year-old daughter Isabella and attempted murder of her 13-year-old daughter Alana.

Authorities had been looking for the 40-year-old since a housekeeper discovered the children Friday morning at a resort.

The teen had severe cut and stab wounds, but authorities say she is expected to make a full recovery.
