BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA (WFTV) – New court documents released Tuesday say a Brevard County mother gave birth to twins on a toilet who later died.
Rachael Lynn Thomas, 30, was taken into custody Monday afternoon. The mother of the newborns faces two counts of child neglect and one count of tampering with evidence.
Police were called Sunday to a home on Laurel Oak Street just after noon.
Thomas told investigators she called 911 at 12:08 p.m. in reference to an unresponsive newborn, according to an arrest affidavit.
Thomas said she began to feel ill at work and went home to lay down on the couch, investigators said. She went to the restroom when the infants fell into the toilet, investigators said.
