COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — A Colorado mother accused of killing her two children and injuring a third has been apprehended in the United Kingdom, according to the Colorado Springs Police Department.
Kimberlee Singler, 35, was the subject of a police search following the tragic incident in December. When police responded to a burglary call at Singler’s home, they found her and her 11-year-old daughter injured, and her 9-year-old daughter and 7-year-old son dead. Although Singler initially cooperated with police, she disappeared during the investigation.
Considered a witness and a victim at the time, Singler was allowed to leave the hospital as there was not enough probable cause to suggest she was connected to her children’s deaths. However, police obtained an arrest warrant on charges of murder and attempted murder Tuesday but were unable to immediately arrest Singler.
The details of how the children were killed and the nature of Singler’s and her surviving daughter’s injuries have not been disclosed. Singler faces multiple first-degree murder charges, as well as charges of child abuse, attempted first-degree murder, and assault, the police stated.
The arrest of Singler in the United Kingdom marks a significant development in the tragic case, bringing hope for justice for the two young victims and their surviving sibling. Singler will now face the legal consequences of the alleged crimes, as the investigation continues to unfold.
In the wake of this heartbreaking incident, the community is left grappling with the loss of two young lives and the impact of such a devastating crime on the surviving child. The police department’s efforts to bring Singler to justice offer some consolation to a community in mourning, while also highlighting the importance of thorough investigation and international cooperation in cases of this nature.
