A mom from Atlanta is reportedly accused of killing her 1-year-old and 2-year-old sons by cooking them alive in an oven and then sending their father a footage of the horrible aftermath.
The police investigators say Lamora Williams loaded the boys — Ke’Younte Penn, 2-year-old, and Ja’Karter Williams, 1-year-old — in the oven at some time around midnight on Thursday and 11pm on Friday, a local news team reported.
Investigations say a warrant for her arrest claims the 24-year-old single mother of four killed her own children “by placing them in an oven and turning it on,” the complaint reported.
Williams then called the boys’ father, Jameel Penn, on Friday night to show him a live video of the crime scene — including the children lying burned on the floor — which resulted him to call 911.
“After I seen what I seen, you know I called the police,” Penn reportedly said. “I ain’t got no soul no more,” Penn said. “Ja’karter, Keyante, my world, my everything. I’m lost.”
Reports say that she denied allegations and told police that she left the kids in a sitter’s care and found the kids dead when she came home late Friday.
But according to relatives, Williams suffered from an undiagnosed mental disorder.
A three-year-old child was also found in the apartment and was fortunately left unharmed when police arrived on Friday. Williams’ eldest child, 6-year-old girl, was safe with relatives and was not home on Friday night, reports said.
Williams quit a job about a month ago because she couldn’t find a babysitter for the kids, as said by Williams’ longtime friend, Neesa Smith. She said Williams called her first on Friday night and said she “couldn’t do it anymore.”
“Nobody could tell what she was going through,” Smith said.
When Smith asked for more details, Williams allegedly said the boys were dead. Smith told her to call the police, but she called Penn via video instead.
Williams was arrested on felony murder charges on Saturday and was ordered held without bond in Fulton County jail. She did not show up to her first court appearance on Monday.
