BURTONSVILLE, Md. – Three children who were missing after their mother was found slain in their home have been found unharmed, Montgomery County Police said Monday night.
Officer Melanie Hadley says four-year-old Elijah Emeruwa, his six-year-old sister Tochi Antinnoe and eight-year-old brother Jaachi were found by police after a resident spotted the car their father was driving near Georgia Avenue and Prince Philip Drive in Olney about 6:15 p.m Monday.
Police pursued the car, with the driver ramming several cruisers before it was stopped on a dead end on Viburnum Way.
The children were turned over to state custody, Hadley said.
Police arrested the father, 41-year-old Kelechi Charles Emeruwa, on a first-degree murder warrant in the death of 36-year-old Chidiebere Omenihu Ochulo. She was found dead about 2:30 this morning inside the home on Dunwood Terrace after police responded to a report of an unconscious woman.
