A 30-year-old Wilmington woman, who called city police early Monday worried about her immigration status after her boyfriend was detained by federal authorities, has been charged in the deaths of her infant son and a 5-year-old boy in her care.
Police was called later that morning by the same woman and found the children drowned in a bathtub in a Trinity Vicinity-area apartment located in the 800 block of W. Ninth St. in Wilmington.
Kula Pelima was arrested and charged with two counts of first-degree murder. She was being held at Baylor Women’s Correctional Institution after failing to post $2 million cash bail, Chief Robert Tracy said at a Tuesday press briefing.
