Mother Charged With Child Neglect, Twins Found Dead In Miami

Shirlene Napoleon Alcime has been charged with child neglect after her three-year-old twins were found dead.

Forty-two-year-old Shirlene Napoleon Alcime, who was alleged by the Miami Dade Police Department of jumping off an overpass in Miami in an attempt to commit suicide on Feb. 2, has been charged with child neglect after her three-year-old twins were found dead. According to People Magazine, the police found her children, Milendhet and Milendhere Napoleon-Cadet, in an unresponsive state and arrested her on Feb. 6. Alcime has been charged with two counts of child neglect causing great bodily harm, according to online jail records. No bond was set for Alcime, and a hearing has been scheduled for Feb. 27.

Milson Cadet, the father of the twins, told the Herald in Haitian Creole that “Justice will have to do its work,” Cadet said. “I just want to definitely know what happened. I just want to know what happened.” Cadet also said that he is dealing with “great suffering” while he mourns the death of his children. Initially, the children were found in the backseat of Alcime’s SUV at approximately 2 a.m. on Feb. 2 in the northbound lane of I-95 while their mother was taken to the hospital in critical condition.
