A young mother has been charged with the death of her infant twins.
Danezja Kilpatrick, , 23, is being charged after her babies were found dead in a Queens, New York apartment building. The mother was charged on Friday.
A 911 call was made by a relative who was concerned about the welfare of the children. According to The New York Times, when officers arrived at the fifth-floor apartment in the Woodside area of Queens, the relative was at the door.
On Thursday, during a news briefing, the Police Department’s Chief of Housing David P. Barrere said that Kilpatrick let the officers enter. They discovered one child “unresponsive with trauma to the body” in a bassinet. When they inquired about the second child, “she pointed towards the sink.” The second baby was discovered under the kitchen sink, wrapped in a blanket inside a black plastic bag.
The twins were a boy and a girl named Dallis and Dakota Bentley. They were just six-week-old.
