A mother killed her YouTube star kids before throwing herself off a bridge, police said.
Young siblings, Isaiah Miller, seven, and his three-year-old sister Iliya Miller were killed by mom Christina Treadway, before she took her own life on Saturday in northwest Charlotte Saturday night. Their dad was out at the time.
Responding to a suicide call to the Old Gum Branch Road bridge at Interstate 485, Charlotte-Mecklenburg police said they found a woman dead on the interstate, just after 5:30 p.m. on January 13
Authorities said “key information” led officers to a home on Sebastiani Drive, where the woman’s children, ages 7 and 3, were found badly assaulted and alone.
The children were transported to Carolinas Medical Center where they were pronounced dead, officials said.
On Sunday, police identified the woman as 34-year-old Christina Treadway, and her children as 7-year-old Isaiah Miller and 3-year-old Iliyah Miller. Investigations revealed that Treadway assaulted her children before jumping off the bridge.

“He went out with his friends for the Eagles game. She texted him saying that she loves him and she’s sorry and that she’s going to end it all and the kids.
“What she did is unbelievable.

Bereaved granddad Grandfather Greg Moore said: “We are not going to forget about Tina. She was a great mom,” said the grandmother, Tina Moore. “She was really, really a great girl. I love Tina to death, but she was just troubled. I don’t know what happened because she came and stayed at my house for the summer. I don’t know what happen, she just lost it,” she said.
A GoFundMe page has been set up by the father of the children.
