A Delaware woman murdered her two sons after she called police to tell them she feared being deported.
Kula Pelima called police on Monday to tell them she was concerned that she would be deported because she was concerned that her visa had lapsed, according to Wilmington Police Chief Robert Tracy, the Associated Press reported.
After police visited her home to reassure her that she was in no danger, as she entered the United States legally and has no criminal convictions, she drowned her children, four-month-old Solomon Epelle, and five-year-old Alex Epelle.
Pelima, who is from Liberia, phoned police around 8:30 a.m. to report her crime.
“There’s no way of knowing what could have led to the deaths of these children,” Tracy said at the press conference.
Her boyfriend, and the children’s father, Victor Epelle, 38, from Nigeria, was apprehended by immigration authorities in Pennsylvania in September, according to the AP.
It is not know what Epelle did to violate the terms of his status, but he was released from custody after being informed of the deaths of his children on Monday.
