Hennepin County prosecutors have filed a petition to civilly commit a Brooklyn Park mother whose four children have been placed in protective custody.
The petition will allow North Memorial Health Hospital, where the woman was taken Monday, to keep her until next week when a court hearing would take place to determine if there's cause to further hold her.
The mother called police on Monday to report her 11-year-old daughter had run away. The girl was found later found safe.
Police say another child was found living in a nearby park, a third was found at a friend's house and a fourth was in the home that officials say is uninhabitable.
Another child, an 8-year-old boy, died at the same house last February. An investigation into his death is ongoing.
