A Delaware woman was arrested after she called 911 to say she’d killed her 3-year-old grandson the week before. She told them she’d also planned to kill herself.

51-year-old Angela Bingham wasn’t home when troopers responded to her home and found the body of the little boy, identified as Rilan Everett. He, according to the report, was “in a bedroom in a state of decomposition … with blue and decomposing skin and fluids flowing from the facial area.”

Ms. Bingham was soon found walking near Route 13 and arrested.

She admitted to officers that on September 18th she’d held a washcloth over young Everett’s mouth and nose while he was awake in bed. As she did, she told him “it was time to go.” She removed the washcloth after he stopped struggling.


Her original plan was to kill Everett, then herself. He was living with her after his mother had abandoned him to be with a boyfriend.

After a brief medical exam at a hospital, she was taken into custody by State Police homicide investigators.

She’s been charged with first-degree murder and is currently being held at the Baylor Women’s Correctional Institution on a $1,000,000 cash bail.
