Brian Coulter girlfriend's starved kids begged for donuts after being left to starve next to 'murdered' brother's corpse

THREE “starving” kids asked for donuts after being rescued from an apartment where they were allegedly living alongside their "murdered" brother's corpse.

Brian Coulter, 31, was charged with the murder of his girlfriend’s son Kendrick Lee, eight, – days after cops found the boy’s remains at an apartment in Houston, Texas.

Kendrick's siblings, who are seven, 10 and, 15, were taken to hospital as they showed signs of malnourishment.

When police arrived at the home on Sunday, the kids asked for donuts and were treated to some sweet treats, according to Harris County Sheriff Sgt. Dennis Wolfford.

Wolfford branded the case "one of the more difficult cases" he has worked on, ABC13 reports

He said: “Very sweet children. Very nice. Very well spoken… at the same time, that thousand-yard stare, that blankness in the eyes.

“At the same time, they were sweet as you can be.”

Erica Chapman, a neighbor, previously told the outlet that the 15-year-old wouldn’t accept cooked meals – only packaged snacks, fruit, and pizza.

Meanwhile, Trevor Thompson claimed the boy was afraid of “getting poisoned”.

Officials say that the condition of the apartment was "deplorable".

Cops believe Kendrick was beaten to death in November 2020, ABC13 reports. The exact date remains unknown.

Medical examiners ruled the manner of the boy's death a homicide, caused by multiple blunt force injuries.

At a testimony, two of the boys said that Coulter covered the eight-year-old's body with a blanket.

The child’s mom Gloria Williams, 35, reportedly told Harris County Sheriff’s deputies she tried to stop Coulter from inflicting the alleged assault.

Williams claimed that Coulter apologized and admitted at the time that he had lost control and kept punching Lee "until he went to sleep."

The mom claimed she checked on her son the day after the alleged attack who was lifeless under the blanket.

Williams was arrested and booked with injury to a child by omission and tampering with evidence (hiding a human corpse), according to the criminal complaint obtained by The Sun. Meanwhile, Coulter was charged with murder.


In court, Williams was accused of admitting that she failed to inform law enforcement because Coulter allegedly warned her not to.

She allegedly claimed she feared she would go to jail and that she would lose custody of her surviving kids.

Coulter didn't appear in court when a judge read out his charges.

The 31-year-old is currently undergoing a mental evaluation and a judge set his bond at $1million, ABC13 confirmed.

Coulter is restricted from having contact with any minors, specifically the minor witnesses in the case, and the judge also ordered him to keep away fromWilliams.

Williams and Coulter were arrested on Tuesday at a public library where they were allegedly researching news articles about themselves.

Cops said Williams and her boyfriend lived in a separate apartment about 15 miles away. It's not clear when the pair started dating.

Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez branded the situation "horrific and tragic".

He said: "It really caught me by surprise. [We’re] connecting all the dots at this point, it appears [the kids] were in there while the body was deteriorating."

The investigation remains ongoing.
