Mother denied bail over drowning deaths of sons
THE Queensland mother charged with manslaughter after her two sons were found dead in the Ross River has been refused bail.
The bodies of Barak Austral, 5, and Jhulio Sariago, 3, were found in Townsville's Ross River after wandering away from their home on February 25.
Just more than a month after the boys died, Leann Chyrsilla Eatts was yesterday charged with two counts of manslaughter, with police alleging her "gross negligence" resulted in their deaths.
After an extensive search, the boys were found submerged in a steep and deep cutaway of the Ross River in Cranbrook on the morning of February 26.
Eatts was remanded in custody to appear on May 17.
