PLAINFIELD - Authorities in Plainfield are awaiting autopsy results to determine how a mother of 3-month-old twins died.

The children were found dehydrated but responsive in an East Ninth Street apartment with 39-year-old Alice Jackson's body.

Officers on Wednesday responded to a call from a relative concerned that he hadn't heard from the woman in days.

Jackson was found dead on her bed. Police she appeared to have died of natural causes. They believe she had been dead for days when she was found.

Her children remain hospitalized in stable condition.

Just last week, a 4-year-old boy was found with his dead mother in another Union County home. The boy is believed to have spent nearly a week in the apartment before he was found on March 26.
