“A Huston mother is accused of killing her two children and hiding their bodies underneath a neighbor’s home. She drowned them in a bathtub by forcibly holding their heads under water.” The police said on Monday.
Sheborah Thomas aged 30, was charged on Sunday with capital murder on a person under age 6, according to court records.
She grabbed (the daughter) by the head and forced her underneath the water until she stopped moving,” according to the affidavit. “After she wasn’t moving and she wasn’t breathing, she took the body out of the water and placed her in the bedroom.”
Thomas then called her son into the bathroom and she placed him in the water, authorities said. The boy struggled against his mother, grabbing her hand, but Thomas “continued to force his head underneath the water until he stopped struggling, he stopped moving,” according to the affidavit.
The mother placed his body next to his sister’s in the bedroom and then later on Friday put their bodies in a trash can behind her home, the affidavit said.
