New Jersey mom charged with murder after dead kids found in back seat

A New Jersey mom was arrested and charged with murder Tuesday after her two dead children were found “bound and restrained” in the backseat of her car, police said. 

Yuhwei Chou, 36, of Skillman was charged with two counts of first-degree murder for allegedly killing her biological children, 7-year-old Samantha Ross and 10-month-old Paul Ross, the Somerset County Prosecutor’s Office said. 

At about 7:41 a.m. Tuesday morning, cops from Hillsborough Township responded to a 911 call of a car that’d driven off the roadway and when they arrived, found Chou in the car and her two kids in the backseat. 

“The Officers observed two children secured in a booster seat and a baby seat in the back seat of the vehicle. Officers observed that the children were bound and restrained. No vital signs were present on the children and they were pronounced deceased at the scene,” investigators said in a news release. 

The events that led up to the children’s death, and the motive for the crime, is still under investigation but a preliminary probe revealed that Chou “caused the deaths of her two children,” police said, without providing further details. 

Chou will face a detention hearing following “medical clearance” from a local hospital.
