ST. PAUL, Minn. — A mother was charged Monday with murder and attempted murder for allegedly throwing her twin sons into the Mississippi River on the Fourth of July. One toddler died; the other was rescued.

Naomi Gaines, 24, pushed her stroller partially across a bridge, kissed the 14-month-old boys and said she was sorry before throwing them into the river, prosecutors said Monday.

Gaines then jumped into the river, shouting "freedom" on the way down, according to the complaint. She was rescued, taken to a hospital and later arrested.

She was charged with murder in the death of Sincere Understanding Allah, and with the attempted murder of his brother, Supreme Knowledge Allah, who survived the 75-foot fall and was pulled from the water by the same onlooker who rescued Gaines.
