A mother has been charged with murder after shoving her two young sons into an oven and turning it on, according to an arrest warrant obtained by CBS46.
“My daughter is a sick person if she did what I think she did,” said Lamora Williams’ mother.
Her mother, Brenda Williams is saddened, but not surprised that her daughter is now charged with murder.
“Mora wasn’t right, she hasn’t been right and what happened three months ago, that the kids father left her, I told him something tragic is going to happen. She’s going to do something to those kids, she’s going to do something to herself,” said Brenda Williams.
Police said when they responded to the scene, the two dead boys had burns on their bodies from being cooked in the oven.
The stove was removed from the apartment as part of the investigation..
“I reported her to DFACS at one point in time once her father died and I did tell DFACS everything because I either wanted them to give me the kids or get the kids out of her possession because at one time I thought she was just going nuts not feeding them,” said the toddler’s grandmother.
The killer’s family said Lamora Williams had mental health problems her entire life, and said it’s possible she was stricken with postpartum depression that sent her over the edge.
Her sister says the tragedy could have been averted, then deflected responsibility and placed blame on the government.
“She had issues and the fact that the state failed her, that’s a problem,” said Tabitha Hollingworth.
The family said the murdering mother left her children alone on a regular basis, and had tried to commit suicide by slitting her wrists on at least one occasion.
“She was a slow learner. I had to pull her out of school and do home school,” she said. “She would do little simple things like cut her, my other daughter, her dolls heads off.”
“You know we see stuff like this in horror movies, but in my family my two littlest grand kids are gone because of what my daughter did. I might need to get help, this is hard.”
Lamora Williams is charged with two counts of murder and one count of cruelty to children in the first degree.
She waived her first court appearance Monday and is due to appear in court in two weeks.
Thankfully, officers said that the third child was not hurt.
