A mother in Atlanta is accused of killing her 1- and 2-year-old children by cooking them in an oven — and then sending the boys’ father a video of the horrific aftermath.

Detectives revealed that Lamora Williams stuffed the boys — Ke’Younte Penn, 2, and Ja’Karter Williams,1 — in the oven sometime between midnight Thursday and 11 p.m. Friday, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

An arrest warrant states that the 24-year-old single mother of four murdered the babies “by placing them in an oven and turning it on.”

24-year-old Lamora Williams from Atlanta, Georgia, locked two of her four children in the oven around midnight Thursday and Friday late evening

The cause of death is pending until autopsies are completed.

Williams called the boys’ father, Jameel Penn, to show him footage of the scene — including the burned children on the floor — which led him to contact 911.

“I ain’t got soul no more,” the heartbroken father said during a vigil on Saturday. “Ja’karter, Keyante, my everything. I’m lost.”

Williams was taken into custody on felony murder charges on Saturday and was ordered to remain in custody without bond in Fulton County jail. She told officers that she left the children with a babysitter care and discovered the kids dead when she came home.

Family members told the Constitution Journal that Williams had an undiagnosed mental illness.

Her 6-year-old daughter was placed in the custody of family members. It is not clear where her fourth child was.
