Cops said she seemed irrational.The officers entered the house and discovered a 5-year-old woman and a 3-year-old boy. The children were depending on a susceptible position on the bed with their arms, legs and neck connected, a cops report said.They tried to resuscitate the kids till a Miami Fire Rescue crew showed up and pronounced them dead. Authorities have not released details on how they were eliminated, however the female has been charged with two counts of murder.It is not yet clear the number of calls were made to 911 or whether she spoke to a dispatcher.Miami cops representative Michael Vega said the dad was not living there at the time but stated there had been at least 4 calls made to the address in the previous year over domestic violence, trespassing and disturbance. None of the events involved the kids and no arrests were made, Vega said.The father, Frantzy Belval, informed The Associated Press that he would pick up the children every weekend and they would go and invest the night with him. Joassaint and Belval are both originally from Haiti, but he got here in 1995 and she concerned the U.S. in 2015.”She had actually asked me to cancel my contract with the house to relocate back with her,” he said. “But she created a lot of issues.”Belval said he was not conscious of any medical diagnosis for mental disorder, however he said Joassaint had lost custody to the state of an older child. That kids father stayed in Haiti.Law enforcement is also working with the Florida Department of Children and Families, but it is not yet clear whether it had been involved with the family in the past. The state firm did not react to ask for information.—— News researcher Rhonda Shafner in New York added to this report.
