In a case that has garnered international attention, Kimberlee Singler, a woman accused of murdering two of her children in Colorado, USA, has been remanded in custody in the UK.
Colorado Springs police reported the tragic discovery of Singler’s nine-year-old daughter and seven-year-old son deceased in their home. Additionally, her 11-year-old daughter was found injured but alive. The police were initially called to the scene for a reported burglary, a claim that was later deemed baseless.
Singler, 35, and the surviving daughter received medical treatment at the scene in Colorado before being hospitalized. However, Singler vanished on December 23, following initial cooperation with the investigation, leading to an arrest warrant on December 26.
Efforts by the Colorado Springs Police Department’s task force to track down Singler culminated in her arrest in Kensington, west London, by the National Crime Agency’s extradition unit on December 30.
Following her court appearance at Westminster Magistrates’ Court, Singler has been detained, pending extradition to the United States. She faces multiple charges in the US, including two counts of first-degree murder, one count of attempted murder, child abuse, and assault. Her next court appearance is scheduled for January 29.
A Colorado Springs Police Department spokesperson stated, “Kimberlee Singler was apprehended in the UK without any issues. Our homicide unit detectives are actively working with various law enforcement agencies to further the investigation.
