Woman Found Guilty Of Torturing Twins

POSTED: 1:19 pm EDT June 6, 2007

MOUNT CLEMENS, Mich. -- A woman was found guilty Wednesday of torturing her adopted 8-year-old twin daughters and beating them with a baseball bat.

Tamika Williams faces up to life in prison after being convicted of two counts of torture and two counts of first-degree child abuse in Macomb County Circuit Court.

Prosecutors said the Warren woman beat the girls with cable wire, shoes and exercise equipment, bathed them in bleach water, burned them with cigarettes and dunked them in a toilet filled with urine.

"The abuse is unspeakable," Macomb County Prosecutor Eric Smith told the Macomb Daily. "There are bruises all over these girls' bodies."

Smith said " Williams threatened both little girls by telling them if they told what was going on, she would hunt them down at their new home and kill them."

She adopted them in 2005 from a foster care home.

The children are alleged to have suffered bruises, welts and burns until they were taken from the home in November after a teacher at their school noticed a burn on one of the girl's arm. The teacher contacted a school social worker, who notified county child welfare agency.

They are now in foster care.

Williams is to be sentenced July 12.
