What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

Trial Begins in Fatal Texas Day Care Fire

Posted on October 29th, 2012 No Comments

In February 2011, a day care fire in Houston, Texas caused the deaths of four small children, and severely injured three others. The day care provider responsible for the safety and well-being of the children was not present at the day care when the fire consumed the building. The woman, now 24-years-old, was shopping at a local Target store at the time.

Investigators determined that the fire had been started after a stove burner was left on inside the home. There were a total of seven children at the day care during the time that the blaze started. The ages of the children ranged from 16-months-old to 3-years-old. The day care owner fled to Nigeria after the fatal accident. She was later tracked down, and was forced to return to the United States to face the charges against her. Her bail was set at $1.1 million.

The charges that were filed against the owner include four felony murder charges, three counts of abandoning a child, and two counts of reckless endangerment to a child. In the state of Texas, an individual can be convicted of murder without intent if their actions were deemed to have led to a person’s death. The young children were unable to fend for themselves when the flames engulfed the building, and therefore were helpless in the deadly situation.
