A Las Vegas woman was due to appear in court on Tuesday morning after she was arrested and charged for drowning her two infant daughters because their organs were ‘worth a lot of money,’ according to authorities.
Amanda Sharp-Jefferson faces two counts of murder after her 1-year-old daughter, Rose Singleton, and 2-month-old sister, Lily, were found dead in her apartment at around noon on Friday.
Las Vegas police said they received a 911 call on Friday from the girls’ father, Jaykwon Singleton, KVVU-TV reported.
Singleton told police that he found his daughters’ bodies stacked on top of each other in a bassinet crib.
On the 911 call, Singleton was overheard asking Sharp-Jefferson what happened.
He then told police: ‘She drowned them…I feel like their mom drowned them or something.’
Singleton told police that he asked Sharp-Jefferson why the girls’ bodies were stacked on top of each other.
He said she then ‘shushed’ him in response.
When he went to check on the kids, he realized they were not breathing and their bodies were cold.
‘[Sharp-Jefferson] kept shushing him and at one point, made a statement that their organs were worth a lot of money,’ the arrest report said.
First responders who arrived on the scene pronounced the children dead.
The arrest report again quoted Sharp-Jefferson as saying that the children’s organs could be worth money.
Singleton told police he and Sharp-Jefferson had been together since 2018.
He said their relationship was normal until a few weeks ago, when Sharp-Jefferson ‘started talking about the altar spirit world making allegations that he was cheating with his spirit wife.’
On Thursday, Singleton said he left the apartment to go visit his grandmother. He told police that Sharp-Jefferson seemed ‘fine’ and everything was normal.
