A married California mother of two has been arrested for allegedly drowning her children, an infant and toddler, in the bathtub while her husband was at work.
Courtney Williams, 26, was arrested at her home in Linda, a Sacramento suburb, on Thursday after the children’s father called 911 around 11:45 a.m., the county Sheriff’s Department announced. from Juba.
The man returned home from work for lunch when his wife “allegedly told him that she had hurt the children,” the department said in a statement.
He found the bodies of the boys, 5-month-old Holden and 2-1/2-year-old Ronin, in a bathtub filled with water, authorities said.
Despite efforts to revive them, the children were pronounced dead at the scene.
Officers responding to the family’s ranch-style home in the 6100 block of Sunshine Avenue arrested the mother, seen on cellphone video recorded by a handcuffed neighbor while she was wearing pink sweatpants and no shoes.

Neighbor Heather Ronson was heartbroken as she spoke with station KCRA about Ronin, whom she said she often saw riding her bike around the neighborhood or playing with her own children.
