Launice Shanique Battle Biography
Who is Launice Shanique Battle ?
A SHATTERING cause of death has been revealed for two young sisters after their mother was arrested.
Launice Shanique Battle, 29, was charged with the murder of her two daughters, Amora Lou Milbourne, three, and Trinity Michelle Milbourne, two.
Battle’s family called the girls’ deaths a “careless mistake” and said the mother “is not a murderer.”
During Battle’s first court hearing on Monday, her father said, to her understanding, the girls were left in a hot car, according to WRAL.
However, this has not been confirmed by the district attorney.
Battle’s cousin said the children’s deaths were a “careless mistake.”
“We love Launice no matter what, and we will support her no matter what,” Lisacious Williams told the newspaper. “It was a careless mistake.”
“She was always there. She’s a caring, loving mother to her children at the end of the day,” Battle’s cousin, Keisha Harris, told the outlet.
“She’s not a cold-blooded killer. She’s not a killer.”
Harris vouched for her cousin as she tried to find reasons as to how this “careless mistake” could have occurred.
“She was just a kid, she may have been experiencing depression or whatever the case may be,” Harris said.
“She just made a bad decision. At the end of the day, she was a good mother to those girls.”
Police responded to Duke Raleigh Hospital in North Carolina on Saturday night just before 9:40 p.m. m., where the girls had been.
Battle was arrested at the hospital on Sunday morning in connection with the deaths of her two young children, which occurred the day before.
It’s unclear if the children were alive when they arrived at the Raleigh hospital.
Battle lived in the town of Cary in a house she only lived in for about three months, her neighbors told WRAL.
Neighbors told the outlet that they believed Battle was a single mother.
Some of Battle’s neighbors told ABC11 that they always saw small children in the house.
Others said they saw children playing in the front yard.
One of the girls’ caregiver told WRAL that she was a “spitfire” who was full of energy and always happy.
Law&Crime reported that a caregiver told WRAL that “there was never a time when she wasn’t happy,” referring to one of the girls.
“It was sent to me by another co-worker and we’ve all been talking about it,” the caretaker said.
“We didn’t find out until later that they were children and that’s when we all started to feel emotional and distressed.”
