The murder of two children, allegedly at the hands of their mother, has shocked the world.

Kimberlee Singler allegedly killed her two youngest children after a judge ordered them to spend Christmas with their father.

She then fled the country and was apprehended in the United Kingdom.

The U.K.’s National Crime Agency announced her arrest and now the U.S is working on having her extradited.

The Colorado Springs Police Department identified Kimberlee Singler, 35, as the prime suspect in the fatal attack on her three children.

The investigation indicates that Singler and her ex-husband Kevin Wentz have been fighting for custody of their three children since 2018.

The little ones are Aden, 7; Elianna, 9; and another 11-year-old girl who survived the attack.

The children were supposed to spend Christmas with their father, per their custody agreement, according to a statement from Wentz.

At midnight on December 19, 2023, 911 operators received a call alerting them to a supposed robbery at Singler’s residence on the 5300 block of Palomino Ranch Point in Colorado.

«Officers arrived at the scene and observed an adult woman and an 11-year-old girl who had sustained injuries,» detailed the Colorado Springs Police.

«Two other minors, a 9-year-old girl and a 7-year-old boy, were found deceased in the residence,» they added.

The Colorado Springs Fire Department and American Medical Response provided emergency care to Singler and her eldest daughter before they were transported to a local hospital.

Kimberlee and her 11-year-old daughter were treated for their injuries and discharged from the hospital.

The Homicide Unit of the Colorado Springs Police Department took over the investigation, and six days later, they asserted that the «initial robbery report was unfounded.»

The investigation took an unexpected turn, when Singler became the prime suspect in the death of her two children.

The detectives processed a warrant for her arrest.

The Violent Offender Fugitive Task Force tried to locate Singler to arrest her for the murders.

She had not been seen in the city since Saturday, December 23, 2023.

An international arrest warrant was issued, and the FBI joined the search, ultimately locating her on December 30, 2023, in Kensington, West London.
