TULSA, Okla. — The mother of the two toddlers who disappeared and drowned in late May will spend 10 years behind bars.
A judge sentenced Donisha Willis on Jan. 26, 2021 after she pled guilty to two counts of child neglect. Originally, Willis was charged with two counts of second-degree murder after police found her two toddlers' bodies several days after they went missing.
On Friday, May 22, 2020, three-year-old Miracle Lashay Crook and two-year-old Tony Demone Crook disappeared. Days later Tulsa Police Chief Wendell Franklin said video showed the toddlers holding hands and walking down stairs towards water near Mingo Creek. They did not reappear.
After searching for several days, authorities found their bodies in two separate waterways.
