  • A 24-year-old mother of four is accused of killing her two youngest sons “by placing them in an oven and turning it on,” according to an arrest warrant obtained Monday by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. An official autopsy is pending. Fulton County jail officials said Lamora Williams waived her first appearance in court Monday on felony murder charges. >> Read more trending news The arrest warrant alleges Williams put her sons in the oven sometime between midnight Thursday and 11 p.m. Friday. Williams called her sons’ father, Jameel Penn, on Friday night and showed him by video chat that something was wrong in her Atlanta apartment home. Penn said he immediately called the police. When officials arrived at the Oakland City West End Apartment complex, the boys, 2-year-old Ke’Younte Penn and 1-year-old Ja’Karter Williams, were dead. Related: 2 children found dead in Atlanta apartment; mother charged Friends and family members of Williams told the AJC she suffered from undiagnosed mental health problems that were exacerbated by her father’s death when she was 19 and by having four children younger than 7. They said she was also a single mother who had some help from Penn, but not enough considering her mental health. Williams’ longtime friend Neesa Smith said Williams quit a job about a month ago because she couldn’t find a babysitter for the kids.  “Nobody could tell what she was going through,” Smith said. Williams’ sister, Tabitha Hollingsworth, said Williams is at risk and should be put on suicide watch in the Fulton County Jail, where she remains without bond.
  •  It will be dangerous if you plan to get in to the water at our beaches over the next few days as we have a high rip current risk. We will see rough seas and surf.  Jacksonville Beach Ocean Rescue says that last weekend was on of their busiest weekends, as they had to make 15 rescues on Sunday. They’re advising you to stay aware if you plan on getting in the water.  This past weekend a 14-year-old boy died after he went missing in the water on Sunday.  Following that death, one Jacksonville Beach resident is asking the city council for more resources.  “It could’ve been avoided had we had maybe enough lifeguards in the chair.” He says.  In St. Johns County, the Sheriff’s Office wants swimmers to be aware as well.  “This is not really optimal time to be out in the ocean swimming, it’s certainly not illegal.” Says Chuck Milligan with the St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office.   If you are caught in a rip current the National Weather Center has tips on how to survive. They say don’t fight the current, relax and try to save your energy. Don’t Swim directly to the shore, swim parallel to the shore and once you get free from the current, swim at an angle towards the shore. They say if you have any doubt about going out into the ocean, then don’t get in.  The National Weather Service says rip currents typically for at breaks in sandbars and also near structures like piers. 
  • The search for a missing swimmer off South Ponte Vedra Boulevard is now considered a recovery effort. St. Johns County Fire Rescue says two men were in the water around 7PM yesterday, when only one came back on shore. Water and air searches started last night, but were suspended late in the evening and resumed this morning.  We’re told the missing swimmer is a middle-aged man who may live locally.  This is a developing story that will be updated through the day.
  • Jacksonville Beach Police say a body washed ashore Monday morning about 18 blocks north of where a teenager was reported missing on Sunday.  Police have confirmed the remains recovered this morning are those of a missing 14-year-old boy from Sunday.  Sgt. Tom Crumley with Jax Beach PD says the remains were found by a passerby around 6:30am.  The 14-year-old boy went missing in the water near First Avenue South on Sunday.  Jacksonville Beach Lifeguards told our partners at Action News Jax they got the call at 1:50 p.m.  Crews tried to get to the boy but were unable to locate him.  The search was called off at 3:40 p.m.  Dangerous swimming conditions kept lifeguards busy over the weekend across the First Coast.  Jacksonville Beach Ocean Rescue says they had to perform 15 rescues just Sunday alone.  Saturday morning, St. Johns County Fire and Rescue and the Sheriff’s Office responded to a three people in distress in the water near Atlantic View. The two children were able to make to shore, but the 47-year-old man had gone missing underneath the water.  Water, air and land resources were able to find the man a short time later while searching for another missing swimmer 47-year-old Dale Kopf last week. The man was taken to Flagler Hospital where his condition remains unknown.  On Sunday, while crews continued to search for Kopf, a human body part washed ashore on South Ponte Vedra Beach.  Deputies say while it is possible it could belong to Kopf, it is not confirmed at this time. It’s currently being investigated and deputies tell us they have no additional reports of missing persons in the water or general area.
  • A young man accused of shooting a Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office detective is set to begin trial today.  19-year-old Kevin Rojas was arrested following the March 2016 shooting on the westside.  Police say the narcotic detective was taking his son to school when he saw an individual driving erratically on Collins Road.  The detective pulled the vehicle over, and investigators say the driver started shooting as soon as he got out of the car. Rojas has pleaded not guilty to the seven charges, including attempted murder.  The detective survived the shooting, and his teen son was not hurt in the exchange of gunfire. JSO believes Rojas may have been attempting suicide-by-cop following a fight with his girlfriend.
