LONDON, UK — Kimberlee Singler, the Colorado Springs mother accused of killing two of her children and injuring a third appeared in a London court on Monday. Singler fled the United States to the United Kingdom.

The court hearing was held in order to discuss whether or not Singler will be extradited back to Colorado. During the hearing, Singler confirmed basic information, such as her name and date of birth.


According to NBC News, this is one of many steps in a long extradition process. They report if the judge rules in favor of extradition, the decision would then be sent to the British Government. The judge's ruling is not expected to happen until September at the earliest.

Background Information
