The woman, who had been wanted by Colorado authorities for the murders of two of her children, was apprehended in the UK on Saturday, according to a statement from the Colorado Springs Police Department.
Kimberlee Singler, 35, is facing charges of murder and attempted murder for the deaths of her three children: a daughter, aged 9, a son, aged 7, and an 11-year-old daughter. Details of the international arrest were withheld by the police at the first press time.
The burglary at Singler's residence was reported to the police on December 19. Upon arrival, they discovered Singler lying injured with her 11-year-old daughter, while her 9-year-old daughter and 7-year-old son were found deceased. It was eventually revealed by the police that the burglary complaint was baseless.
According to a statement from the Colorado Springs police, Singler was cooperative with them at first but then vanished while they were investigating.
Since there was insufficient evidence linking Singler to her children's deaths, the authorities released her from the hospital despite her status as a victim and witness. On Tuesday, authorities were able to secure an arrest warrant for Singler on accusations of murder and attempted murder; but, they were unable to apprehend him without delay.
Authorities did not provide details on the manner of the children's deaths or the injuries sustained by Singler and her surviving daughter.
According to a police statement, Singler is facing several first-degree murder charges in addition to allegations of assault, attempted first-degree murder, child abuse, and multiple counts of first-degree murder.
