Mother charged in Alberta boys’ death

Allyson Louise McConnell charged with two counts of second-degree murder

by

Three weeks after the boys’ father discovered their bodies in the family’s bathtub, the mother of 2 ½ year old Connor and 10 month old Jayden has been charged with their murder. The RCMP said it waited to lay charges in order to establish “reasonable and probable grounds,” that McConnell had “committed an offence.” She’s been remanded into custody but will be under 24-hour supervision at a medical facility until deemed well enough to be moved to a correctional facility. Privacy issues prevent her illness from being made public, but McConnell is expected to appear in provincial court on March 16.
