There’s a Devil Loose: Mother, 35, and Her Boyfriend, 31, Are Arrested Two Days After Her Three Children Were Found Abandoned and Living in Squalor in Houston Apartment Next to the Rotting Remains of Their Eight-year-old Brother

A Houston woman and her boyfriend were arrested and charged by authorities on Tuesday for abandoning and neglecting her three young children in a home for months at a time while the kids’ eight-year-old brother’s corpse decomposed in the house for more than a year.

Gloria Y. Williams, 35, has been charged with injury to a child by omission, failure to provide medical care and failure to provide adequate supervision, according to Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez.

Brian W. Coulter, 31, is charged with murder in connection with the child’s death, ABC 13 TV reported.

The two were questioned and released hours after investigators performed their welfare check on Sunday, during which they made the gruesome discovery.

Williams’ 15-year-old son, who had been caring for his two younger brothers with the help of a neighbor who brought them food and charged their cell phone when the electricity to their home was cut, called 911, prompting the welfare check on Sunday.

Court documents obtained by DailyMail.com indicate that Williams was charged twice for failing to enroll her children in school.

Alief Independent School District told KTRK that in 2019 and 2020, the school district filed truancy papers against the siblings’ mother because two of them were not attending school. The children were last enrolled in May 2020.

Both charges were later dismissed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Police have ruled the death of the eight-year-old boy a homicide.
