"They came out crying. I ran out to see what was wrong with them. They were saying, "Something's wrong with mama!"
According to a detectives, Dunn burned his clothes and the knife he used to stab Bolden and tossed them in a dumpster at a Waffle House restaurant. Cops were able to retrieve the charred murder weapon.
Bolden's two children are in custody of the boy's father, Jeff Busby, who said she contracted HIV within the past two years.
Dunn is being held on $500,000 bond on a murder charge.
