Gloria Y. Williams, 35, told KHOU in an exclusive interview from prison that she did not know her 8-year-old son was dead.
Authorities found children – ages 7, 9 and 15 – and the body of a fourth child in an apartment in Houston on Sunday. The cause of the child’s death was declared “murderous violence with multiple injuries by blunt force,” according to the Harris County Institute of Forensic Science.
He is believed to have died around Thanksgiving, Sergeant. Dennis Wolford, chief investigator at the sheriff’s homicide department, told a news conference.
When asked what happened, KHOU reported that Williams said, “I’m sorry. I didn’t do it.”
According to the criminal complaint, Williams tried to “change, destroy and conceal … a human corpse”.
She was charged with injuring a child by omission, injuring a child by causing grievous bodily harm, and interfering with evidence of a human corpse, according to court records. The guarantee for these costs is $ 900,000.
It is unclear whether Williams acquired legal representation.
Her boyfriend Brian W. Coulter was charged with murder in the death of an 8-year-old child. Coulter, 31, committed “criminal injury to a child by intentionally, knowingly and recklessly inflicting bodily harm” by hitting the child with his hand and kicking him, resulting in death, according to the indictment documents filed by Harris District Attorney.
The bond for Coulter was set at $ 1 million. Terms include no contact with Williams or anyone under the age of 17. CNN could not determine if he had secured a lawyer.
