    Mom, fearing deportation, drowns infant son, 5-year-old half-brother, cops say



    A woman drowned her infant son and his 5-year-old half-brother in a bathtub hours after she called police and told them she was worried about being deported, a Delaware police chief said Tuesday.

    Kula Pelima, a native of Liberia who has lived in the U.S. for two decades, called 911 about 3:45 a.m. Monday, fearing that her visa had lapsed, Wilmington Police Chief Robert Tracy said at a news conference.

    "She was concerned about her immigration status," Tracy said. "She's a Liberian immigrant that came to the country in 1997, and she was worried about what could happen to her because her boyfriend ... [the father of both boys] was picked up also by the feds on some immigration issues on Oct. 6."
    It’s not clear why Pelima was worried. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said she is a permanent resident with no criminal convictions.

    An officer visited her home early Monday and told her local authorities were not going to arrest her, the police chief said. The officer even gave Pelima an immigration hotline number to call, and observed the older boy doing well during the visit.
    Pelima called 911 again about 8:30 a.m. and said she had drowned her son, 4-month-old Solomon Epelle, and 5-year-old Alex Epelle, authorities said.

    Tracy told DelawareOnline.com that Pelima admitted to drowning the boys during the call and sounded “controlled.”

    "Not someone that is indicative of someone that just has murdered two children," he told the paper. "Very calm, and actually stayed on the line for us and was pretty matter of fact of 'Yes, there's two homicides.'"
    Tracy said the crime was shocking even to hardened officers.

    Pelima, 30, was charged with two counts of first-degree murder and was being held on $2 million bond. It’s not clear if she has a lawyer yet.

    There was a strong odor of gas in her apartment, but it was not clear if the gas stove had been turned on intentionally, the chief said. The building was evacuated but no one was hurt by the fumes.

    Pelima’s boyfriend, the father of both boys, is a native of Nigeria. He was taken into custody by immigration authorities in Pennsylvania on Sept. 14. The couple lived together in Wilmington, and she helped care for both children, the police chief said.
    Victor Epelle, 38, was in the United States legally, but he had violated the terms of his status, ICE said. It wasn’t immediately clear what he had done.

    He was released from custody Monday on humanitarian grounds after being notified of the deaths of his sons.

    How tragic. Seems that she panicked for no apparent reason, unless the partner was up to no good, and she feared there would be good grounds to deport the family. She's made a huge mistake. No one likes kiddy killers in prison.

    Those eyes are emotionless. As was her phone call to report it all.

    She's psychopathic. Nuts.

    Its the image in the link.

    And she killed her own kids.

    And there's this:

    "Not someone that is indicative of someone that just has murdered two children," he told the paper. "Very calm, and actually stayed on the line for us and was pretty matter of fact of 'Yes, there's two homicides.'"
    So its appropriate to see the face of a cold blooded child killer.






    But I know you really just want to make it about racism. Since you seem to really be jumping on this whole racism bandwagon lately.

    She's unlikely to do prison time. LD I have to agree with you. What a crying shame she didn't seek help.

    Time to drag Trump into this story, it's Trumps tough stance on immigration that made her do it.

    Illegal immigrant slaughters kid, expect she will be allowed to stay for a while! Maybe prison is better than the shit hole she should be sent back to?

    You clearly lack reading comprehension. She is a legal resident. That said this is typical trash from fox news. What should have just been a local news story is cherry picked to push the right wing agenda and the viewership eats it up.

    The formula;

    Slap the word immigrant as a headline.
    Slap a huge oversize picture of the black woman front and center.

    Equals instant meat for trumpanzees like slick.
