This is the moment a New York mother was led from a Queens police precinct after being charged with stabbing her six week-old twins to death.
Danezja Kilpatrick, 23, was pictured in a white hazmat suit and blue surgical face mask as she was taken out of the NYPD’s 114th Precinct in Astoria, New York, on Friday night.
Kilpatrick could be seen giving a wide-eyed stare to cameras as she was taken to jail, less than 24 hours after allegedly killing son Dakota, who was found with a knife sticking out of his head, and daughter Dallas.
Police first found the infant boy, Dakota, inside a bedroom crib at Kilpatrick’s home in Woodside, Queens, with the blade still inside his skull, the Daily News reported, citing police sources.
When asked about the second child, the young mother indicated that the girl, Dallas, was under the sink, which is where police found her wrapped in a pink blanket, sources said.

Kilpatrick has been charged with two counts of murder, two counts of acting in a manner injurious to a child and one count of criminal possession of a weapon.

Kilpatrick’s sister had posted a picture of the babies when they were born in March with the caption: ‘Huge congratulations to my Sister Danezja on her newborn twins Dallas and Dakota Kilpatrick. I’m so happy for her’.
