A mother accused of killing her two youngest children by baking them in a household oven will appear in court on 15 November. Lamora Williams called the children's father on Facetime to show him their charred corpses, police say.

Williams, from Atlanta, placed Ja'Karter Williams, 1, and Ke'Younte Penn, 2, into her oven on 13 October, according to an arrest warrant. The baby boys died from severe burning.

The father of the boys, Jameel Penn, previously told reporters that Williams called him over video chat to tell him that his children were dead and showed him their corpses on the floor.

"After I seen what I seen, you know, I called the police," Penn, who was no longer in a relationship with Williams, told the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

The couple had another son together, three-year-old Jameel Penn Jr, who was in the home with Williams but left unharmed, as was her six-year-old daughter, fathered by another man.

Friends and family have claimed that Williams suffered from undiagnosed mental health issues, which were compounded by her father's recent death and the pressures of caring for four young children with little outside help.

Her family have urged the authorities to place her on suicide watch as her case makes its way through the courts.

During a vigil for his sons on in October, Penn held his surviving with three-year-old in his arms. He said: "I got soul no more.,"
