Ga. Mom Allegedly Killed 2 Kids by Putting Them in Oven Before Video-Calling Their Dad to Show Scene

A Georgia mom who allegedly murdered her young sons — and then showed the children’s father the scene on a video call — killed the boys “by placing them in an oven and turning it on,” according to an arrest warrant obtained by multiple outlets.

Police have charged Lamora Williams with two counts of murder in the deaths of her 1- and 2-year-old sons after Atlanta police officials discovered the children with burn marks, officials have said.

Williams, 24, is currently being held in the Fulton County Jail after waiving her first appearance in front of a judge on Monday, according to online jail records.

In August, Justine Ruszczyk was reportedly set to marry Don Damond, and she had already publicly taken his last name.

But instead of a future celebration, Justine’s fiancé was left Monday mourning his bride-to-be, who was shot dead by a police officer near her home in Minneapolis on Saturday night after she called 911 to report a possible assault.

Justine, a 40-year-old yoga and meditation instructor from Sydney, was shot and killed after a pair of Minneapolis police officers responded to her home Saturday about 11:30 p.m. authorities said.
