The mother of two boys who died while swimming in a pool has been arrested by the Broward Sheriff's Office deputies.

Wildline Joseph, 23, is facing two counts of aggravated manslaughter after she failed to take care of her children and was reportedly sleeping at the time of the incident.

6-year-old Ja'kye Joseph and 5-year-old Branario Minto drowned on May 22 at the Silver Palms Condominiums near where they lived.

According to the Department of Children and Families, the kids climbed a fence to the pool while their mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother stayed at home.

The DCF officials said that at least six reports of child abuse or neglect have been filed against Joseph between 2015 and 2018.
