<a href="https://thegoldwater.com/news/9609-Atlanta-Mother-Returns-Home-to-Find-Her-Two-Babies-Dead">Originally Police were told </a> that it was an accidental fire, but an autopsy revealed that the children were murdered.
Authorities say they've arrested the children's mothers, 24-year-old Lamora Williams on two counts of murder.
To make matters worse authorities found another child inside the apartment, a three year old named JR, who they say is traumatized from witnessing the entire series of events.
One year old Ja’karter and two year old Keyonte couldn't possibly have done anything to deserve the horrific crimes committed against them taking their lives, and police are baffled as to how such a vile creature could do this to her own children.
The mother claims that she left the three children with a caregiver at around 11:30 PM on Friday night but authorities say they believe she killed them and left them alone.
We were called out around 11 p.m. Friday on a person injured call," Atlanta Police Lieutenant Carven Tyus said. "When officers arrived they found two children, a one year old and a two year old, deceased. They had obvious injuries and burns on their bodies, but we don't have a cause of death at this time.”
"They've been sent to the Fulton County Medical Examiner's office for autopsies, so we can figure out the cause of death," Tyus said.
"That baby seen everything," said a tearful aunt at a vigil Saturday night, grateful the three-year-old survived the ordeal.
“I treated those babies as if they were mine… they didn't deserve this at all," said Ashley Strange, a next-door neighbor who was in tears; Strange and other loved ones ask themselves why the mother did not ask for help that night for a caregiver.
Williams is now scheduled for an upcoming court date next Wednesday where she's being held without bond due to the nature of the crimes against the children.
