Mother Allegedly Kills Two Children and Injures Another

Authorities are on the lookout for 35-year-old Kimberlee Singler of Colorado, who is suspected of killing two of her children and injuring another. Singler is accused of lying to police about a burglary at her home earlier this month, where two of her three children were found dead, according to Colorado Springs police. She has been charged with:

  • 2 counts – 18-3-102(1)(a), Murder in the First Degree, Class One Felony (F1)
  • 2 counts – 18-3-102(1)(f), Murder in the First Degree, Class One Felony (F1)
  • 1 count – 18-2-101, Criminal Attempt – Murder in the First Degree (18-3-102(1)(a)),Class Two Felony (F2)
  • 1 count – 18-2-101, Criminal Attempt – Murder in the First Degree (18-3-102(1)(f)),Class Two Felony (F2)
  • 2 counts – 18-6-401(7)(a)(i), Child Abuse, Class Two Felony (F2)
  • 1 count – 18-6-401(7)(a)(iii), Child Abuse, Class Three Felony (F3)
  • 1 count – 18-3-202, Assault in the First Degree, Class Three Felony (F3)

Singler was last seen on December 23 before the police filed an arrest warrant for her.

 New court documents reveal there was a rocky custody battle between Singler and her ex-husband. Singler went back and forth for more than four years with her ex-husband over custody of their three children and time restrictions with their kids. 

Singler was ordered to bring her children to visit her ex-husband between December 16 and December 31, according to court documents, in order to compensate for the time he missed during the investigation into her accusations. She was supposed to meet her ex-husband with their children at the Colorado Springs Police Department’s Stetson Hills Substation at 9 a.m. on December 16.

At this time, it is unknown if Singler attended the meeting, but court documents indicate her ex-husband requested police enforce the custody agreement the following day on December 17.

On December 19, police responded to a 911 call reporting a burglary at Singler’s residence. When they arrived, they found Singler and her 11-year-old daughter with injuries, while her 9-year-old daughter and 7-year-old son were found dead. After receiving medical treatment at the scene, Singler and her daughter were taken to a local hospital. However, further investigation revealed that the initial burglary report was false.

Authorities obtained an arrest warrant for Singler on December 26 after establishing probable cause for the murders. The details of the warrant are currently sealed under a court order, but Singler’s bond has been set at $10 million. The 11-year-old daughter who was injured in the incident is safe and recovering in the Colorado Springs area.

The search for Singler is being conducted by local police and the FBI. Singler has been labeled as a fugitive. It is urged that anyone with information regarding her whereabouts come forward. According to Ira Cronin, a spokesman for the Police Department, they have “reason to believe” she is no longer in the state, which is why the FBI is “assisting in the search.”

This tragic case highlights the alleged actions of a mother suspected of killing her own children. At this point, it is unknown what motivated the killings. Authorities are working diligently to locate Singler and bring her to justice. The collaboration between local police and the FBI is crucial in ensuring a thorough investigation.
