A DE woman anxious about being deported - even though she was in the country legally - was charged with murder earlier this week after allegedly drowning her 5-month-old son and his 5-year-old half-brother, police say.

However, against the Texans, Hogan completed 20 of his 37 attempts for 140 yards with one touchdown and three interceptions. Kizer's completion percentage was under 50 percent in each, and he totaled just two touchdowns and eight interceptions.

An officer visited her home early Monday and told her local authorities were not going to arrest her.

Pelima called 911 again about 8:30 a.m. and said she had drowned her son, 4-month-old Solomon Epelle, and 5-year-old Alex Epelle, authorities said.

Pelima allegedly sounded "controlled" when she called authorities to say the boys were dead, Tracy said.

A vigil was held Monday night for the two boys. It is unclear Wednesday whether she has retained an attorney.

"We are speaking with the mother to find out the details of what happened with these children, and trying to gather witnesses and as possible, and wait for a medical examiners office to really see exactly the cause of death", Tracy said. He was taken into custody by immigration authorities in Pennsylvania on September 14.

Epelle was also in the USA legally but had violated the terms of his status, it was reported. Detectives said the children were likely drowned, although unconfirmed until the autopsies are complete.

While stressed that he didn't know Pelima or her personal history, Jabateh said he met Liberian immigrants who would rather die than return to their home country.
