Lamra’s family sounding a different note blamed the state for the tragic death of the boys. Their grandmother, Brenda Williams,, said her daughter has struggled with mental health issues her whole life and got no help: “I just came from the jail, I also let them know, to put her on suicide watch because she’s gonna kill herself,” she said.
Lamora’s sister, Tabitha Hollingsworth, believes the deaths of Ja’karter and Ke’yaunte Penn could have been prevented.
“This was something we saw that could possibly happen. She’s had issues from a baby. Issues my mom tried to address with the state of Georgia,” Hollingsworth said.
Williams was expected to be arraigned on the charges Monday, but she waived her first appearance in court.
