Michigan woman charged with ’03 murders of newborn twin sons
CHICAGO – A Michigan woman has been charged with murder in the deaths of her newborn twin sons more than 17 years ago, police said Saturday. Antoinette Briley, 41, of Holland, Michigan, was charged Friday with two counts of first-degree murder for the deaths of her sons. Cook County detectives eventually identified Briley as the victims’ potential birth mother. Detectives traveled to Holland, Michigan, and obtained a discarded cigarette containing Briley’s DNA, which was matched to the DNA from the victims. Police learned Briley was in Cook County and took her into custody after a traffic stop in suburban Oak Lawn.
