Police released the horrifying 911 audio from a Georgia mother who investigators claim placed her two young boys in the oven and turned it on, resulting in them roasting to death, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.
Lamora Williams, who is charged with two counts of murder in the deaths of her 1- and 2-year-old boys, can be heard in the recording telling the dispatcher that she doesn’t want to go to jail and that she is not to blame for the boys’ deaths.
In the call, placed at about 11:30 pm on Friday, Williams, 24, says that she left her three sons with a cousin who then left the children alone at an Atlanta apartment.
“This is so serious; I’m so scared,” Williams says. “I don’t want to get locked up because I was at work.”
She later repeats herself.
“This is not my fault; I just came home from work,” she says.
Police said that

A mom in California was found guilty on Thursday for her role in her husband’s murder. As The Daily Beast reports, 37-year-old Sabrina Limon was also convicted on charges of soliciting a murder, conspiring, and being an accessory in helping her younger lover kill her husband of nearly 14 years.
Robert Limon, 38, of Helendale died on August 17, 2014. Sabrina Limon’s lover, Jonathan Hearn, testified in September that the murder plot began as a joke months earlier.
Prosecutors say Sabrina and Hearn (seen below) wanted to kill Robert Limon in hopes of cashing in on his $300,000 life insurance payments and being together. Her defense attorney claimed that it was Hearn who was the real killer. “The only evidence that the people have is Jonathan Hearn: an admitted, cold-blooded, calculating killer, who stalked her husband and killed him,” said defense attorney Richard Terry.
They also said that the couple were swingers

James Robert Louis Wood, a Utah 19-year-old, has been charged with 12 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor and 10 counts of dealing in harmful materials to a minor by an adult into sending him nude pictures.
According to People, Wood created a fake Facebook profile for a woman named “Jessica Ford.” Wood used images of the woman to seduce 11 boys through Facebook messenger and encourged them to send him naked images of themselves. He used naked images of the woman he posed as to coax them. Wood then shared the images he received with friends at school and a sibling of one of the victims. It is unclear if “Jessica,” the woman Wood posed as, is a minor or an adult.
“James would make friends with these individuals on Facebook Messenger, and after some conversations back and forth he would request nude photos which the minor victims had sent him,” reads the

Indiana authorities are investigating a serial rapist who may be connected to a murder.
According to ABC 7, a 15-year-old who was arrested last week in Hammond in connection to two rapes may have also killed a young mother.
“Depraved young man,” Mayor McDermott said of the teen. “I talked to the officers who arrested him and there was ice blood, there is basically ice water in his veins. Described to me as a sociopath.”
The first incident took place on July 26 when the suspect is believed to have threatened a 14-year-old girl with a hammer and sexually assaulted her.
On August 8, the same man was seen on surveillance video (pictured above) allegedly forcing a 25-year-old victim into an alley. He is believed to have threatened her with a hammer and raped her as well.
Indiana State Police Crime Lab confirmed DNA evidence links the same suspect to both rapes. Formal charges are

A man has pleaded guilty to killing his 3-year-old son in an attempt to keep his girlfriend around.
David “D.J.” Creato Jr., 23, will serve a maximum of 10 years for aggravated manslaughter for killing 3-year-old Brendan, whose body was found in the woods in 2015 near his Creato’s New Jersey home, Philly.com reports.
In court on Wednesday, Creato said he “recklessly caused his son’s death under circumstances manifesting extreme indifference to the value of human life by depriving Brendan of oxygen.” An exact cause of death has not been determined, yet three medical examiners ruled that the toddler died of “homicidal violence.”
The plea deal came about two weeks before Creato was to go on trial a second time for murder, on September 11. Back in June, a mistrial was declared after a jury said they couldn’t agree on a verdict five days into deliberations.
According to the Associated Press,

After a North Carolina man was arrested for allegedly leaving his five children alone while he went to work, the community decided to raise money to help him.
Victor King, 30, told ABCNews that a stranger bailed him out of jail after his Thursday arrest. King told a judge on Wednesday that his wife was recently diagnosed with stage four cancer. He claimed he left his children, who are all under the age of 8, in the care of a neighbor who in turn left the children alone.
King was charged with child abuse after going to his job at Chipotle. Yahoo reported that a woman called 911 after she noticed that the children were home alone for the second time. She claimed she told King she’d help him find a babysitter. He refused the offer. King was previously convicted for child cruelty in 2011.

A young mother was arrested in Arizona after her friend discovered she had allegedly molested two children and sold the videos over the internet, Fox 10 Phoenix reports.
Keri Harwood, 28, allegedly molested the two children multiple times in the bathroom of her home. Her friend discovered the videos after Harwood gave her friend access to her Pokémon Go account login information.
Because the Pokémon Go account was attached to Harwood’s Gmail account, her friend was able to see her emails.
In these emails, she was allegedly able to see two videos showing the children being sexually abused. She also saw PayPal transactions ranging from $50 to $115, apparently for access to these videos.
Police claim that Harwood told them that she had masturbated over video for a man she met online, in exchange for money. She received between $500 and $600 from this man over several months, police claim.
