A CABOOLTURE grandmother has been charged with four counts of attempted murder in relation to the Morayfield "house of horrors" case.

Police confirmed today they had charged the 58-year-old woman after she was arrested and questioned by detectives this morning.

She has since been accused of attempted murder, attempted arson and interfering with a corpse in relation to the Morayfield homicide investigation.

Detective Acting Inspector Ben Fadian said the investigation was ongoing.

"We're not going to rule anything in or out at this stage, it's an ongoing investigation."

The incidents occurred between July 2013 and September 2014.

The woman will appear in Maroochydore Margistrates Court via telephone link Wednesday.

A three-month-old boy and a seven-month-old boy died in separate incidents in the Morayfield home.

Acting Detective Inspector Graham Walker of the Homicide Group said a dedicated team of officers including detectives and forensic specialists remained committed to this investigation.

"This is a complex and protracted investigation. We will not waiver in our commitment and dedication to ensuring that these incidents are fully and comprehensively investigated," Detective Inspector Walker said.
