Two children were drowned in a bathtub and now their mom is accused of homicide, according to police.
This week, the Yuba County Sheriff’s Office in California arrested Courtney Williams, 26, in connection to the homicide of her two children on April 7.
Around 11:45 a.m., police responded to a possible drowning at a home in Linda, California, according to the sheriff’s office. Police arrived and found an infant and toddler unresponsive in the bathroom.
First responders tried to give care, but both children were pronounced dead at the scene.
The victim’s father told investigators that he returned home from work when his wife, Williams, said she hurt the children, according to the sheriff’s office. He searched the home and found the children in a bathtub full of water.
Detectives said they believe the drownings was intentional.
“The tragic loss of five-month-old Holden and his two-and-a-half-year old brother Ronin reverberates throughout our department and into the community,” said Sheriff Wendell Anderson. “There are no words to adequately describe the sadness we feel for the family at this time.”
