Seal Beach, CA (The Weekly Vice) – Linda Wilborn, a 31-year-old Orange County woman was jailed after she allegedly beat her 2-year-old twins, killing one of them and severely injuring the other.
According to Seal Beach police, Wilborn was at home with her children on December 17th while her husband was at work when 911 received a call from her around 4:00 p.m. reporting that her daughter Millicent was unresponsive.
The child later died at a hospital due to a ruptured heart. She also had several fractured ribs, some of which happened prior to this incident. The girl’s twin brother was also taken to the hospital, suffering from a fractured skull.
Investigators later determined that the children’s injuries were caused by excessive brutal force trauma handed out by Wilborn.
Wilborn’s son and two other children, who did not show any signs of abuse, are now in protective custody. She was arrested while visiting them at the Orange County Social Services..
Wilborn was booked into jail and charged with three felony counts of child abuse and one felony count of assault on a child with force likely to produce great bodily injury resulting in death. She is being held on $1,000,000 bond.
