The mother of two Bronx children who died from gas poisoning has been arrested and charged with murder.
Responding to reports of a gas leak early Friday morning, police found three people unconscious in an ninth-floor apartment at 1500 Noble Avenue.
Police identified two of the victims as 5-year-old Trevor Noel, Jr. and 4-month-old Lillian Noel. Both were found unconscious and pronounced dead on the scene.
The mother, 29-year-old Lisette Bamenga, was also found unconscious with "minor lacerations" to her wrists, police said. Police sources said she attempted suicide. She was taken to Jacobi Hospital, where she was in stable condition.
The mother forced her children to drink toxic wiper fluid, sealed the apartment windows with plastic and tape and turned on the gas stove, police sourced said.
Authorities found an apparent suicide note the mother had written stating that she was taking her children “to a better place,” a law enforcement official said.
