Gloria Williams Wiki – Gloria Williams Biography
Gloria Williams and her boyfriend Brian Coulter were both charged with the death of Williams’ 8-year-old son Kendrick Lee and the neglect of Williams’ other children.
Chilling details were revealed in court Wednesday about the savage death of an 8-year-old Houston boy whose remains were found in the family’s apartment with his abandoned siblings.
Ms. Williams is 35 years old.
Cops found the skeletal remains of Kendrick Lee on Sunday after his 15-year-old brother, Jordan Lee, called police to report the deplorable conditions in which he and two surviving siblings had been living for nearly a year without supervision.
Harris County Sgt. Dennis Wolfford said Wednesday that Coulter pummeled the boy to death sometime between Nov. 20 and Nov. 29 of last year, KTRK TV reported.
After the beating, the parents abandoned the kids to live about 25 miles away.
Gloria Williams And Her Boyfriend Charged
The children’s mother and her boyfriend were held on bond for the hideous crime — as one of the kids’ devastated grandmothers expressed regret for not adopting her neglected 7-year-old grandson.
The children’s mother, Gloria Williams, 35, has been charged with neglecting the kids while her boyfriend, Brian Coulter, 31, was arrested and charged in the beating death of Kendrick.
During the mother’s court appearance, it was revealed that her two younger boys, Trevon Lee, 10, and the 7-year-old, Ja’Veon Kirklin, witnessed the murder and endured abuse themselves.
The mother also told deputies she saw part of the fatal attack but failed to report it to law enforcement because her boyfriend told her not to do so, and she feared going to jail and losing custody of the kids, the outlet said.
In testimony to deputies, Trevon and Ja’Veon reportedly said they saw Coulter repeatedly kick and punch Kendrick until he stopped moving.
The boys said the boyfriend then covered Kendrick with a blanket, the boys said, and the day after the beating, Williams said, she found her dead son under the cover.
The mother claimed she tried to stop Coulter during the attack. The boyfriend later apologized, Williams said, and told her he had lost control and punched the boy “until he went to sleep.”
A Tuesday autopsy revealed Kendrick died of multiple blunt-force injuries.
On Wednesday, Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said that one of the two younger surviving boys was found Sunday with a broken jaw.
Gonzalez said investigators believe Coulter caused the injury about three weeks ago during a rare visit to the filthy, cockroach and fly-infested apartment.
The three siblings were described Wednesday by Wolfford as “special-needs children” who were left mainly to fend for themselves.
