HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- A woman and her boyfriend, who is charged in her 8-year-old son's murder, lived with his remains in the apartment where three of her other children were also later found abandoned, ABC13 has learned.
On Monday, 35-year-old Gloria Williams appeared in court, where more disturbing details in an already difficult case were revealed.
Williams is charged with injury to a child by omission and tampering with evidence.
Her bond is set at $900,000: $350,000 for injury to a child, $300,000 for tampering with evidence and $250,000 for injury by omission.
Her boyfriend, 31-year-old Brian Coulter, is charged with 8-year-old Kendrick Lee's murder. His bond is set at $1 million.
Coulter is accused of beating the child to death around Thanksgiving of last year.
Both he and Williams remain in jail.
According to new details given Monday, Williams and Coulter lived with the remains in a west Harris County apartment until March, when they moved out, leaving behind the woman's three other children, ages 15, 9, and 7, with Kendrick's body.
The surviving children allege that they were locked in a room with Kendrick's remains, even while the couple lived there.
Williams allegedly sent groceries to the apartment once a month and kept the lease on the unit so the remains wouldn't be found.
Authorities discovered Kendrick's remains a week ago. His siblings were living in deplorable conditions.
