Breast-fed Williams twins refuse formula
Newborn twins Mikayla and Mikaylee Williams, who were left fatherless after Monday’s murder, are crying constantly and refusing baby formula. Father of the twins, Michael Williams, 24, was murdered by a 33-year-old female relative around 11 am on Monday at his home on Union Road, Marabella. The babies have been put in the care of their aunts Denise and Docy-Ann Harriott.
In a telephone interview, Docy-Ann said they were planning to take Williams’ body back to Jamaica for a funeral service next week. She said her mother Janet Harriott was trying to raise funds in Jamaica to take back the body. “My mother does not plan to come to Trinidad. Right now she is struggling to find the money to bring my brother back home so he can have a proper funeral,” Docy-Ann said. She said since the killing, she has been unable to sleep or eat and Williams’ daughters had been crying incessantly.
“Both children were accustomed to being breast-fed but their mother is not with them,” Docy-Ann said. She added that the children were refusing baby formula. She also said she was unable to get Williams’ death certificate because the autopsy report was incomplete. The autopsy said Williams died from a single stab wound to the upper abdomen. However, Docy-Ann said the report did not have a doctor’s signature and she was denied the death certificate.
“I have to go back up to Port-of-Spain tomorrow and I don’t know how to reach there. We need some help, because we are using up all our money to buy milk for the children.” Meanwhile, police are moving to lay charges against a relative accused of murdering Williams. Investigators said a file was submitted to the DPP yesterday.
