Atlanta – A terrified mother tells the Snellville, Georgia, dispatcher that she just heard one of her sons asked, “Where did mom go?” They’re on their way upstairs now, she tells the 911 operator, barely completing her sentence before letting out a muffled scream. The phone emits two tones as if someone is pressing the number keys. A male voice in the background says something about a phone. The mother sounds as if she’s crying when she says, “The police are on their way. The police are on their way.” She is no longer speaking to the dispatcher.
“Hello? Hello? Hello, ma’am?” The dispatcher calls. There is no reply, only silence on the other end. Two Atlanta area brothers remained behind bars Tuesday and charged with multiple felonies after police say they attempted to kill their parents over the weekend. Yvonne Ervin has been treated and discharged from Gwinnett Medical Center, while her husband, Zachary Ervin, was still in the hospital Tuesday. He was in fair condition, said Beth Hardy, spokeswoman for the medical center.
Police released the audio of the call that Evonne made Saturday morning to 911. On it she sounds groggy and distraught as she says, “Please send someone to my house. My children are trying to kill me.” When asked what she means, Yvonne says that 17-year-old Cameron and 22-year-old Christopher drugged her and their father’s food with the antidepressant Xanax before attempting to kill them.
