Police say mom killed children before sinking car

  • Follow News

 ORANGEBURG, S.C. -- 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.

Tie a concrete block to her

Tie a concrete block to her feet and throw her in the river. No better yet have ane expensive trial then charge the taxpayers 45 thousand dollars a year to house and feed the piece of scum. Im sure she will make a good cell mate for susan smith.

I don't understand people

I don't understand people like this?? If you didn't want the children or something was messed up in your life, there are so many other avenues to take!! To take the lives of your children takes a beyond evil and sick person, this is just horrendous. Bless those kids, and may the woman rot in ****.

2 counts of 1st degree murder and a death sentence sounds just right to me.

Check out this article by the local newspaper in Orangeburg. http://www.thetandd.com/

She should not be called a mother -- she is not a mother. A mother dies for her kids. She doesn't kill the innocent kids because she had an argument with her mother. She doesn't deserve death / life sentence. She will have free room, free meals, free tv, free healthcare. She deserves to have something over her face and die by smothering so she can realize the fear those kids had.

You will never ever, ever,

You will never ever, ever, ever read something like this in a muslim country. They have a special treat for idiots that prevents people from going over the top and its called beheading after a short trial. BTW Corgi you are right unless they have a DA in orangeburg who acts like our very own, and hands out lesser sentences to make the judge happy.

BTW where was the daddy? And

BTW where was the daddy? And what happened to the third child? What gets me is that people don't seem to understand that we don't really have a death penalty anymore. When I was kid, the electric chair was enough to make people keep track of their senses and I never heard or such a thing as a mama killing her children. But rest assured the pastors will be out in full force claiming she was a good mama and a good christian and the court should have mercy. And of course we will have the religious zealots calling for people to pray for her. Disgusting.

How sick this mother must be.

How sick this mother must be. Post-partum depression or whatever other mental illness she has will be treated in prison (thanks for buying her meds, everyone!) and only then will she be right enough in the head to feel the pain of the horrible thing she's done. Doubt there's any worldly justice that will compare to what she's going to feel for the rest of her miserable, medicated sane life and hot, fiery afterlife. Those poor babies.

I just read the arcticle

I just read the arcticle posted by teapot and it says that the daddy was not living with them but has been contacted. The third child a little girl is now living with the grandmother. I cannot believe that a mother would ever do anything like this to their own flesh and blood. I'm sure that she will plea out with insanity or stess and take a much lesser sentence than what she should receive. Then after she gets out of course she'll start reproducing again. They should lock her up and throw away the key and in her cell there should be a life size portrait of those two babies that she would have to look at everyday while incarcerated!! They should also sterilizer so she can't be released and produce more babies that one day she might just decide to kill cause someone "stressed" her out.

One other thing, it said that

One other thing, it said that she didn't have a job and was stressed taking care of her children. If that was the case, then how did she get the money for the hotel room she was in when she killed them? And also, why did she spare the little girl? The article said that the older child had defensive wounds, can you imagine trying to fight off your own mother to keep from killing you! The whole thing is just disgusting!
