According to the police report, Anthony, 11, August 10, and Treshawn, 9, were the children of Allen’s that were in the pool and drowned. Her other two kids are now with Child Protective Services and were with her at the time of the incident, police say.
Family spokesman Anthony Bond told CBS DFW that he does not believe that Allen is a bad parent and the whole ordeal was a terrible mistake. "Patricia Allen is far from a criminal," he said. "She is a loving, caring, and one of the sweetest people I've met for the first time. And she's a grieving mother."
CBS News adds that area churches are planning to reach out to Allen and try to help her pay the $50,000 bond.
