DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. - A mother accused of disappearing from Clayton County with her premature twins last week made her first appearance in court Friday morning.
Ka'Miyah Cherrelle Wilson was arrested in DeKalb County after authorities said she took her 14-month-old twins, Kaden and Kaleel Wilson, from their home without the medical equipment that's needed to keep Kaden alive.
Wilson's fiancé, Talonie Loftin El, argues Wilson is a caring young mother who loves her children and said her babies were never in any kind of danger while in her care. He also said Wilson recently moved out of the Riverdale apartment she lived in with her mother and the twins, and the grandmother didn't want them to leave.
Wilson's mother told police she stopped feeding Kaden doctor prescribed formula and instead started to feed him a “smoothie concoction” using a syringe which caused Kaden to suffer significant weight loss. A Levi’s Call was issued after Wilson left with the children last Friday, July 7, around 12:35 a.m.
Loftin El said the Levi's Call and the child cruelty warrants are bogus because Wilson has custody of her children and can take them anywhere she pleases. He said the claim that Ka'Miyah did not have the equipment needed to take care of her special needs son was not true.
The Clayton County Police Department said in a statement sent to FOX 5 News they issued Tuesday's alert because a feeding pump was left behind.
Friday morning, a DeKalb County judge granted Wilson a $10,000 bond. She remains at the DeKalb County jail.
Both twins will are expected to be at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta at Scottish Rite for the next few days. They will be turned over to the custody of the Georgia Division of Family and Children Services.
