Mom charged with drowning daughters

CLEVELAND, Oct. 2 (UPI) -- A Cleveland woman whose young daughters were found drowned in the bathtub was charged Tuesday with two counts of aggravated murder.

Amber Hill was arrested Monday after the children’s father, Jaimie Cintron, called police. Cintron had come home after Hill called him at work and told him the two girls, Cecess Hill, 2, and Jannelle Cintron, 4,

were “resting in peace.”

On Tuesday, Cuyahoga Coroner Frank Miller ruled the deaths were homicides, The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer reported.

Cintron pleaded no contest to domestic violence in 2004 and a conviction on the same charge in 2006. Ed Tomba, commander of the police homicide unit, said Hill in her statement did not say she killed her daughter because of battering.

When he called 911, Cintron was so upset dispatchers had trouble understanding him, police said. He shouted repeatedly, “Why? Why? Why?”
