A woman has been charged with involuntary manslaughter after her two children, ages 4 months and 8 months, died in their sleep just 18 months apart under. How sad.

Katherine Jennings, 33, is in police custody following the suspicious death of her two sons, Luke, 8 months, and James, 4 months. Each of her infant sons died mysteriously in their sleep just 18 months apart, and now Kathrine has been charged in their deaths with involuntary manslaughter. The young mother also has a third child, a 4-year-old daughter, who lives with her father, Katherine’s ex-husband, in a different state.

This is incredibly suspicious.

A mother in Charlotte, North Carolina was arrested on Aug. 19 after being charged with two counts of involuntary manslaughter. The charges stem from the death of not one, but two of her infant children, reports the Charlotte Observer.

 

The first death was her 4-month-old James, who died in 2012 under very mysterious circumstances. Katherine claimed that she had been sleeping with her son at the time, but the details of how and where they were sleeping together appear to be unknown. At the time, the infant’s tragic death was ruled an “accident” by a medical examiner who determined that the baby had suffocated — but was later changed to “undetermined.”

In 2013, a similar incident occurred when Katherine fell asleep on the couch with her 8-month-old son, Luke, in her arms. Reports claim that the baby was in her arms as they slept, and when she woke up she found her son unresponsive.

A medical examiner once again ruled the second tragic incident an accident by suffocation, claiming that “co-sleeping” was a factor in the baby’s death.

The report also claims that it has been suggested that Katherine has a history of alcohol abuse, though a connection has not been made between this claim and the death of the two babies.

Katherine has at least four DUI charges on her record in Georgia, where she reportedly grew up. There is also an incident on record that claims Katherine was found asleep behind the wheel of a vehicle that was turned on and in gear, though the report does not state whether or not the vehicle was moving.

At the time, Katherine’s then-husband and the father of both of her babies, Seth Phillips, was not home at the time of either of these deaths. Not surprisingly, the couple is now divorced, and Seth has full custody of their 4-year-old daughter at his home in Tennessee.

Our thoughts remain with Seth, his daughter, and the rest of the Phillips family at this time.

REST IN PEACE, SWEET BABIES…………….. AND AS FAR AS THAT SO CALLED MOTHER IS CONCERNED, SHE NEEDS TO BE PUT DOWN, LIKE AN ILL ANIMAL. TOO BAD HER GUILT HASN’T COME THROUGH YET, OR HER BRAIN CLICK INTO REALITY, SUICIDE WOULD BE HER BEST OPTION, BECAUSE IF IT WERE UP TO ME, I WOULD PUT HER IN FRONT OF A FIRING SQUAD. THEN BURN WHATS LEFT OF HER, SHE DOES NOT DESERVE JAIL, THAT MEANS SHE LIVES. IF YOU TAKE THE LIFE OF A CHILD, OR AN ANIMAL, THEN YOUR LIFE SHOULD BE TAKEN!!!! END OF STORY.
