S.C. authorities seeking murder charges against mother

South Carolina authorities are seeking murder charges against a woman in the deaths of her two children, who were found in a car submerged in a river Monday, Orangeburg County Sheriff Larry Williams told CBS' "The Early Show."

Williams said Tuesday investigators worked through the night on the case, and he believes authorities are prepared to present their facts and probable cause for an arrest warrant to a judge. "Hopefully, upon that presentation of our facts ... they will issue a warrant for murder."

Investigators had previously identified "some issues that needed to be unraveled" in the case, he said, but as 29-year-old Shaquan Duley was interviewed throughout the evening, "we discovered some other issues that we had great concern (about)."
