The three children say they were locked inside a room with Kendrick’s body while the mother and her boyfriend lived there. After the couple moved out, Williams reportedly sent the surviving children groceries once a month and kept the lease open so the remains were not found.
Officials were tipped to the body last month after the 15-year-old called Harris County officials that his brother had been dead for a year. The teenager told the sheriff’s office that the body was in the apartment he shared with two other younger brothers.
