Florida Woman Arrested Accused Of Strangling And Killing Her 2 Children

Police have arrested a Florida woman who they said murdered her two young children at an apartment in Miami’s Little Haiti neighborhood.

Miami Police officials said they had received several 911 calls at around 8 p.m. from a woman who appeared to be in distress and in a crisis.

The woman had been continuously calling 911 but never said why she was calling, officials said.

When officers responded to a home in the 100 block of Northeast 75th Street, they found 41-year-old Odette Joassaint, who allegedly told police “Come get them, I don’t want them anymore.”

As officers searched the apartment, they found Joassaint’s two children, a 5-year-old girl and 3-year-old boy, tied up in a bedroom.

Miami Fire Rescue attempted to save the children’s lives, but they were both pronounced dead that the scene.


Joassaint was transported to the hospital, Miami Police said. She was later arrested and charged with two counts of first-degree murder.

She is being held without bond.
