Mr Coulter, 31, has been charged with murder while Ms Williams, 35, was charged with felony injury to a child by omission, and tampering with evidence (human corpse), Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez announced on Tuesday.

Sheriff Gonzalez said more charges might be laid.

The Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences in Houston — which conducts all autopsies in the county — listed the primary cause of death as “homicidal violence with multiple blunt force injuries”.

One of the surviving siblings, a 15-year-old, called the sheriff’s department on Sunday and told authorities his brother had been dead for a year, according to police.

The 15-year-old told authorities his parents had not lived in the apartment for several months.

Mr Gonzalez said it appeared that the surviving children were “fending for each other”.

Their apartment did not have any power and a neighbour had helped the children by charging a phone for them and buying them food, according to Deputy Thomas Gilliland, a spokesman for the Harris County Sheriff’s Office.

He said investigators were still trying to determine why no one in the apartment complex had noticed anything unusual.

The three surviving children were taken to a hospital to be assessed and treated.

They last attended school in May, 2020, according to Craig Eichhorn, a spokesman for the Alief school district.

However, they did not return for the 2020–2021 school year and school officials had attempted an unsuccessful home visit in September, 2020, Mr Eichhorn said.
