    CLEVELAND (AP) — A battered woman whose two daughters were drowned in a bathtub was charged in the deaths Tuesday, a day after she called the girls’ father and told him they were ‘‘at peace.’’
    City prosecutors filed two counts of aggravated murder against Amber Hill, who was in jail on suicide watch, after a coroner ruled that the deaths were homicides.
    Hill, 22, had no documented history of neglecting the girls, ages 4 and 2, but had herself been the victim of abuse by their father, Jamie Cintron, according to authorities and court records.
    ‘‘We never had a call of any maltreatment of the children,’’ said Jim McCafferty, director of the Cuyahoga County Department of Children and Family Services. ‘‘The kids were clean and well cared for. It’s just a sad situation.’’
