Description of Incident:

The mother of two young brothers who drowned earlier this year after venturing into a pool at the Silver Palms Condominiums in North Lauderdale, was arrested this morning in relation to the deaths.

At approximately 1 a.m., September 7, the Lauderhill Police Department took Wildline Joseph, 23, into custody on a warrant facing two counts of aggravated manslaughter of a child. Detectives said Joseph failed to provide proper care and supervision for the brothers, which made her responsible for their deaths.

Earlier this week, on September 3rd, John Louis Lynn Jr., 24, was also arrested facing two counts of aggravated manslaughter of a child.

Both, Lynn and Joseph, have been booked into the Broward Sheriff’s Office Main Jail, each on a $250,000 bond.
