An Atlanta mother of four is behind bars after she was accused of roasting her two small boys — ages 1 and 2 — alive in an oven to get revenge on their dad.
Lamora Williams shoved the two tots in the oven and turned it on, according to the arrest warrant.
As per AJC:
A 24-year-old mother of four is accused of killing her two youngest sons ‘by placing them in an oven and turning it on,’ according to an arrest warrant obtained Monday by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
An official autopsy is pending.
The arrest warrant alleges Williams put her sons in the oven sometime between midnight Thursday and 11 p.m. Friday.
Atlanta police had said earlier that the two boys had ‘received burn marks on their bodies at some point, possibly from the stove.’
Police removed the stove from the home for further investigation.
A six-year-old was also living with Williams at the time of the brutal murders but was not home. A 3-year-old, who shares the same dad as the murdered boys, was present but not harmed.
The boys’ father, Jameel Penn, reported the crime after Williams called him and showed him what she was doing to the boys in a video chat.
“I ain’t got no soul no more,” Penn said Saturday night, according to AJC, referring to the grief of seeing the horrific act that took the youngest boys’ lives.
A friend of Williams said that she had been going through a hard time and had to quit her job when she could not find childcare for her young kids prior to the murders.
Williams is currently being held without bond.
