An Atlanta woman was charged with murder after allegedly putting her two young sons in an oven between Thursday and Friday last week. Lamora Williams, 24, initially told the police she left her 1-year-old son Ja’Karter Penn and 2-year-old son Ke-Yaunte Penn in the care of relatives.
Police did not believe her story and were alerted to the crime by the children’s father. An arrest warrant states that she is accused of killing the two “by placing them in an oven and turning it on.”
Police say the children had injuries, including burns.
Jameel Penn, the father, said Williams called him by video chat Friday night to tell him his children were dead. He said he could see his sons on the floor and called police.
“I ain’t got no soul no more,” the father told Channel 2 News. “Ja-Yaunte, Keyante, my world, my everything. I’m lost.”
A third boy, 3-year-old Jameel Penn Jr., was found unharmed.
Williams is now in the Fulton County jail and her sister, Tabitha Hollingsworth, is asking that she be put on suicide watch
