SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Investigators are releasing more details in the Halloween murder of Melithia Singleton. Singleton's own children actually found her in a pool of her own blood. The 8 year old and 11 year old discovered her body at the Bradley Pointe Apartments last week. Now, Singleton's family is speaking for the first time since her death. They say the children are still trying to make sense of such a senseless crime.

"They are doing about as well as can be expected. They are going to require some counseling. We have already set up counseling for them. All we can do is watch over them and be there for them," said Donald Lambert, Sr., Melithia Singleton's father.

Thomas Jackson is still in jail, charged in Singleton's murder. Her family says the two were in a relationship but Singleton was trying to end it.
