THIS is the heart-wrenching moment a seven-year-old boy tells a 911 dispatcher: “Somebody killed my mummy.”
The 911 emergency call, which was released this week, relates to a double murder in Washington state in 2016.
Daniel Kenison and Brenda Kolbert were found shot dead in their Spokane Valley home in August that year.
On Monday, the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office released the 911 calls alerting cops to the killings.
“Spokane 911,” a dispatcher says at the beginning of the call with seven-year-old Cooper Kolbert.
“Somebody killed my mommy,” Cooper replies. “Please come and call the cops and please come here.”
The dispatcher responds: “I will as soon as you tell me where you are.”
Gilberto Delgado, 44, said to be Brenda Kolbert’s ex-boyfriend, was arrested and charged with the murders of Kenison - the child’s uncle – and Kolbert.
Cooper’s father, Lance Kolbert, told KHQ the boy was in his mum’s car in August 2016 when Delgado allegedly pulled up to their home and chased her.
He said: “I listened first hand from Cooper everything that happened. It’s horrible, but we got him.”
Delgado allegedly walked out of the home a short time later and fled the scene.
He was arrested the next day at a Taco Bell car park in Idaho.
Delgado is being held in jail on $1million (£704,000) bond.
The double murder trial is expected to begin in October.
