By Associated Press
UPDATE: A southwest Atlanta mother charged with murdering two of her own children is expected in court on Monday morning. Police said the 1-and-2-year-old children of Lamora Williams were found dead inside her apartment earlier this month.
Williams is currently being held without bond at the Fulton County Jail.
The arrest warrant for Williams said she placed 1-year-old Ja'Karter Penn and 2-year-old Ke'Yaunte Penn inside an oven and turned it on.
Also inside the apartment at the time of the deaths, 3-year-old brother Jameel Penn, Jr., who was unharmed.
What we still do not know and could begin to learn in court are some of the details that led up to the deaths -- including what took place inside the apartment, as the state will need to present enough evidence to show probable cause to move the case forward.
PREVIOUS STORY: ATLANTA (AP) - A warrant says an Atlanta woman put her two young sons in an oven and turned it on.
Local media reported Monday that the warrant charging Lamora Williams with murder in the deaths of 1-year-old son Ja'Karter Penn and 2-year-old Ke-Yaunte Penn says she put them in the oven sometime between midnight Thursday and 11 p.m. Friday.
A third boy, 3-year-old Jameel Penn Jr., was found unharmed.
Williams waived a court appearance Monday and was denied bail.
The father of all three children, Jameel Penn, says Williams called him by video chat Friday night to tell him his children were dead. Penn says he called police after seeing his sons on the floor.
Williams' sister, Tabitha Hollingsworth, says Williams should be put on suicide watch in the Fulton County jail.
