Lamora Williams, a mother of three from Georgia, is accused of the horrific murder of two of her children. She has been accused of killing the children by placing them in the oven, and she has been charged with serious crimes in relation to the tragedy. On Friday, June 2, William waived her first court appearance.
On the night in question, Williams called 911 and expressed fear that her sons were dead and that she would be consequently sent to jail. Later, the father of the two deceased boys called 911 and described a video he received from Williams as “like a real horror movie.”
Both toddlers had burn marks on their bodies when police found them, leading the police to speculate they had been burned. However, the medical examiner concluded that these “thermal changes appear to be entirely from dry heat and changes from prolonged exposure to heat,” not burning.
Shockingly, it was believed the eldest boy, who survived, watched his mother kill his two younger brothers that tragic night.
Williams was in the courtroom on Friday morning but did not appear before the judge for the scheduled final plea hearing. Instead, lawyers for the state and defense reportedly agreed on a special setting for a trial date that a Fulton County Superior Court judge will announce in the future.
In October 2017, Lamora Williams was arrested and charged with four counts of felony murder, two counts of murder, two counts of aggravated assault, two counts of concealing the death of another, and one count of making a false statement.
She has also been charged with two counts of cruelty to children in the first degree, one count of cruelty to children in the second degree, one additional count of aggravated assault, one count of obstruction of a law enforcement officer, and one count of battery resulting in substantial physical harm.
The fate of Lamora Williams is now in the hands of the Fulton County Superior Court judge. A trial date for this tragic case will be announced in the coming weeks.
