New court documents were released Wednesday in the case of a woman accused of murdering her three young children.

A search warrant was executed on June 2 at Octavia Rogers' home near 25th avenue and Greenway Road. Police seized 133 items, most of them buccal swabs of blood. However, other items seized were 5 knifes, a laptop and tablet computers, a suitcase and a white trash bag with bloody bedding inside.

Investigators also took several articles of clothing and bedding with blood on them, a mop head, religious pamphlets and a baggie containing a green leafy substance.

From the hospital, police seized a tube of Rogers' blood, a buccal swab and her fingerprints.

Rogers is being held on a $1 million cash bond as she stands accused of the murders of her three sons, 8-year-old Jaikare Rahaman, 5-year-old Jeremiah Adams and 2-month-old Avery Robinson. Police said she stabbed them to death on June 2 at their north Phoenix home. Two of the children were found by police in a bedroom closet, while the youngest child was found in a suitcase. 

Rogers has been charged with three counts of first-degree murder.
