Aol Reports: The mother of two toddlers found dead in their submerged car has confessed to suffocating them before she drove her car into a South Carolina river, the sheriff said today.
Orangeburg County Sheriff Larry Williams told reporters that Shaquan Duley admitted she staged the accident. Duley, who now faces murder charges, said she became distraught after fighting with her mother, according to Williams.
She suffocated her children by putting her hand over their mouths, then strapped them into their car seats and drove into the North Edisto River, the sheriff said.
Divers recovered the bodies of Devean C. Duley, 2, and Ja’van T. Duley, 18 months, from the river on Monday.
