ATLANTA (TCD) -- A mother accused of killing her two young children by placing them in an oven and leaving them for a long period of time will stand trial after waiving her plea hearing Friday.
WAGA-TV reports Lamora Williams did not stand before a Fulton County judge for her hearing, meaning a court date for her trial will be scheduled at another time.
Prosecutors charged Williams with two counts of murder, four counts of felony murder, two counts of first-degree cruelty to children, three counts of aggravated assault, two counts of concealing the death of another, and one count each of second-degree cruelty to children, making false statements, obstruction of a law enforcement officer, and battery causing substantial physical harm in connection with the deaths of her sons Ja’Karter Penn, 1, and Ke’Yaunte Penn, 2. She has been in custody since Oct. 14, 2017.
According to the arrest warrant cited by WAGA, on Oct. 13, 2017, Williams called Atlanta Police at approximately 11 p.m. and reported she came home from work and found her two young sons dead in the kitchen. She allegedly said a caregiver watched the boys while she was out, but the caregiver was nowhere to be found.
