SC mom expected to plead guilty in deaths of 2 sons she admitted suffocating, putting in river
COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) ' A South Carolina mother is expected to plead guilty Friday to charges she suffocated her two young sons before driving her car into a river in an attempt to cover up their deaths.
Shaquan Duley (shah-KWAHN' DOO'-lee) has been held without bond since her August 2010 arrest in the deaths of her boys, 2-year-old Devean and 18-month-old Ja'van. The 30-year-old mother has been charged with murder, but the charges to which she's expected to plead guilty aren't immediately clear.
Divers pulled the boys' bodies from a river on August 16, 2010. Duley initially told police she fell asleep at the wheel before the car went into the river about 40 miles south of Columbia, but authorities questioned her story after finding no signs of a crash.
