MIDWEST CITY, Okla. (AP) — Authorities have identified the woman found dead inside her Midwest City home as her young children played outside in their pajamas.

The Midwest City Police Department identified the woman as 23-year-old Jessica Lynn Brown, a reservist for the Oklahoma National Guard. Authorities have not yet released a cause of death but said there was obvious trauma to Brown's body.

A neighbor called 911 after seeing the 2-year-old girl and 4-year-old boy playing in the street. When police arrived, they told officers, “Mommy is asleep.”

Chief Brandon Clabes says police had been called to Brown's home several times in the past 10 months for domestic issues. No one has been arrested in Brown's death.
