A Maryland woman has been indicted on charges of killing two adopted daughters and storing their bodies in her freezer. State's Attorney John McCarthy says 43-year-old Renee Bowman will face murder and child abuse charges in the deaths of the two girls and abuse of her surviving daughter. The indictment will be entered into the official court record later Thursday.

The case began in September 2008 when Bowman's 7-year-old daughter jumped out a window and was found in their Calvert County neighborhood.

The family lived in Montgomery County between 2005 and 2007. Investigators believe that's where Bowman killed the girls and that's where a grand jury indicted her on those charges.

The girls were adopted in the District of Columbia. Bowman continued collecting payments from a D.C. agency after their deaths.
