Nicole M. Johnson, 33, faces many charges after two children 7 and 5 were discovered deceased in her car on Wednesday.
Johnson, from Baltimore, has been charged with first-degree child abuse resulting in the death of a child under 13. Joshlyn Johnson and Larry O’Neil were identified as the victims.
After receiving a speeding ticket, it is reported that she told officers, “It don’t matter. I won’t be here in 5 days. Y’all gonna see me on the news. Y’all gonna see me on the news making my big debut.”
As her car was being towed, an officer then smelled “the unmistakable odor of decomposition.”
Authorities discovered the bodies in suitcases. They are said to have been in the trunk since May 2020.
The children stayed with, Johnson, their aunt, because their mother was unable to care for them.
Johnson stated one child died when she became angry. The other after not healing after an injury.
