ORANGEBURG, SC (AP) - Funeral arrangements have been set for the two toddlers authorities say were suffocated by their mother, then driven into a South Carolina river.
Officials with Simmons Funeral Home in Orangeburg say services will be held at 11 a.m. Friday at St. Paul Baptist Church for 2-year-old Devean C. Duley and 18-month-old Ja'van T. Duley.
The boys' mother was charged with murder Tuesday. Authorities say 29-year-old Shaquan Duley killed her young sons, then strapped their bodies into their car seats before rolling the vehicle into a river in a cover-up attempt.
Investigators were not convinced when Duley said her sons drowned after her car plunged into a river. The local sheriff says she ultimately confessed to killing the toddlers. She's to be arraigned Wednesday.
