Law enforcement officials have slapped a California mother accused of drowning her 5-month-old and 2-year-old sons in the bathtub with a murder charge.

Investigators identified the accused as Courtney Williams, 26.

According to reports, the Yuba County Sheriff’s Office went to her family’s home at 11:45 a.m. Thursday in response to a call from her husband, the father of her children.

The father, who found the children unresponsive in the bathtub full of water, said he had returned home from work for lunch just before noon.

It is alleged that his wife told him she had hurt the children.

Deputies performed life-saving measures, but both children were pronounced dead at the scene.

It was not immediately clear what led to the incident, which Yuba County Sheriff Wendell Anderson described as tragic.

“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,” he said.

“There are no words to adequately describe the sadness we feel for the family at this time, ” Anderson said in a statement.

  1. This is not a black or white issue (so get off the stupid racist mindset) this is a sorry tragedy found in all society both historically and at present.
    The sickness of the mind is one which affects multiple of persons around them. Unfortunately for the infants that cannot ask for or call for help at a time of need. When that which is in the mind says to ‘strike’ it matters not how, where, who or when to act, all hell brakes loose, that’s the part that brings tears to the eyes.(My God is faithful and will usher the infants into His Paradise, and I pray that God be merciful to the mother, for we know not the condition of the Mind at that time).

  2. Unless this is the result of Post Partum Depression, men and women really need to watch ppl closely for possible signs of serious mental health issues, before having children with them.

  3. So where is her picture ?? The Jamaican cop accused of hiding coke in the pumnney her picture is splash front and center, but the white woman who drowned her 5 month old and 2 year old son in a bathtub their is no picture……not even a made up one. So what’s the lesser of the two evils ?? Inquiring mind would like to know .
