Mother accused of killing her 2 young children waives first appearance
A mother accused of killing her children waived her first appearance in court on Monday morning.
We’re working to learn the latest on this investigation for Channel 2 Action News at Noon.
Police tell Channel 2 Action News Lamora Williams, 24, killed two of her children. The youngest was only a year old.
The children’s’ father claims Williams made a video call to him showing the scene, and Channel 2’s Audrey Washington said the details coming out of this case are “truly disturbing.”
The discovery was made late Friday night at the Oakland City West End Apartments
Williams told police she left her children with a relative at around 12 p.m. Friday and returned home late in the evening to find the children, 1 and 2 years old, dead. A 3-year-old survived.
Police and neighbours, however, disputed Williams’ story.
Brenda Williams, Lamora Williams’ mother, said her daughter struggles with mental health issues.
“I just came from the jail,” Brenda Williams said. “I also let them know, to put her on suicide watch because she’s gonna kill herself.”
Neighbors expressed their grief and disbelief at a vigil Saturday night. They told Channel 2’s Chris Jose the apartment “smelled like death.” A smell, investigators say indicate the bodies may have been inside for a few days.
