SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) — A mother charged with killing her two children drove the 10-year-old girl and the 13-year-old boy to California and then smothered and drowned them in a motel rather than relinquish custody, according to a grand jury transcript.
Marilyn Edge, 43, was ordered by a Georgia judge to turn the children over to their father three days before their death in September 2013, the Orange County Register reported Monday.
Santa Ana police Detective Eddie Nunez told the grand jury that Edge drove the children first to Arizona, where she lived, and then to Orange County. She told 13-year-old Jaelen and 10-year-old Faith that they were headed on a vacation to enjoy the beach and Disneyland. On their last day alive, she took the children to Huntington Beach and then to dinner before drugging them with a sleep aid mixed into juice or soda, according to the transcript of the testimony.
Edge, of Scottsdale, Ariz., then drowned her son, who was autistic, in the bathtub and smothered her daughter with a pillow when she would not get in the tub, the paper reported.
Edge's public defender, Frank Bittar, did not return a call from the AP on Monday.
Dr. Yong-Son Kim, a forensic pathologist, testified that an autopsy revealed Faith died from smothering and Jaelen died from a combination of drowning and smothering.
After the killings, Edge put a full propane tank in her car and crashed it into an electrical box on a median in Costa Mesa in what police have called a suicide attempt.
When police arrived, she tried to strangle herself with an electrical cord and told arresting officers her children's bodies were at the nearby motel.
An attorney for Edge's ex-husband, Mark Edge, previously told the AP that a judge awarded the children's father full custody on Sept. 11, 2013.
The children died the day before a court-ordered deadline to turn them over to their father in Georgia.
Edge is being held without bail and will next be in court in January.
It is exciting to experience. No, it is not a Cardinals football game, though it does get a little noisy. No, it is not the latest movie. Neither is it a trip to Disneyland, though it does involve a lot of creativity and imagination. It does have something in common with sporting events, movie theaters and Disneyland.
