ORANGEBURG, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina authorities say a mother who claimed her children drowned when their car careened into a river has been charged with murder after confessing to suffocating the toddlers and then faking the accident.
Sheriff Larry Williams said Tuesday that 29-year-old Shaquan Duley told police she was distraught after a dispute with her own mother and killed her children by putting her hand over their mouths. He says Duley then strapped the children into her car and drove it into a river Monday morning. Duley is to be arraigned Wednesday.
