    Rest in peace, Sierra Wilcox.

    Sierra Wilcox, 4, died in the blaze while she slept on a couch. Her mother, who was asleep upstairs, smelled smoke and tried to put out the flames that started on a kitchen stove top, investigators said. The mother was driven back by the thick smoke.

    Posted: May 11, 2010 11:18 AM EDT

    This follows the house fire at 1110 Q Street in Tekamah. The 4-year-old was one of four family members inside the home when a stove fire broke out. She died inside the home. At first, the fire appeared to be accidental, but during the investigation, signs of foul play were found.

    Christian Wilcox was taken into custody Monday following a fire investigation by the Burt County Attorney's Office, the Nebraska State Patrol, the State Fire Marshal's Office, the Tekamah Police Department and the Burt County Sheriff's Office.

    Christian Wilcox is being charged as an adult, booked in the Madison County Juvenile Detention Center.

    Sierra's mother, Kaylee Magill, 27, told Shada that she was sleeping upstairs with a 5-year-old daughter when she awoke to the smell of smoke and tried to put out a fire in the kitchen.

    Magill told Shada that Sierra and Christian were asleep on a couch in the basement. Everyone got out of the house safely except Sierra, who was discovered by firefighters on the main floor of the residence. A preliminary investigation found she died of smoke inhalation.

    Deb Collins, a spokeswoman for the Nebraska State Patrol, said an autopsy was conducted the next day and indications of foul play were discovered.

    This is so sad
    It does not sound like there were smoke detectors in the house since the mother was only alerted by smelling smoke.
    A few weeks ago there was a fire that killed a little girl up in Salt Lake, the rest of the family was able to get out, also a very sad situation. I remember hearing later that there would be an autopsy and I understood that they do have to find out if there was foul play and the fire set to try and cover it up. I have not heard anything else in that case so I am assuming that it was just an accidental fire with tragic results. They also did not have smoke alarms!

    O/T but the smoke alarm thing scares me to death. I take enough medicine at night to knock out a horse in order to be able to go to sleep. One night, a dumb friend of my daughter's accidentally set fire to a trash can full of paper. The whole can was raging and starting to catch the carpet on fire. There was a lot of smoke and the detectors were going off. Neither my husband nor I heard a thing. My daughter burned her hand pretty badly as she grabbed the trash can and ran into the bathroom and threw it in the tub. If she hadn't, there is no doubt in my mind, we would have had serious damage. But, now I'm really paranoid because we didn't hear the alarm. Our bedroom is actually two separate rooms, so there was one room in between, but that's all. The alarm is right outside our outer bedroom door.

    Did I read the article correctly that the mother told that the little girl and her 14-year old step-brother were sleeping on the sofa in the basement? Who allows a 14 year old boy to sleep with his four year old step-sister? I'm not blaming the mother because the fault is with the fourteen year old, but it just didn't sound right to me.

    That caught my eye as well, lizzybeth. It hit me the same way, but I didn't quite know what to make of it. For instance, if they had been watching TV and fell asleep or something. But, that isn't what it sounded like, is it?

    No, it didn't. It almost sounded like it was the usual. I guess your theory would make sense. I think I would still pick the four year old and put her in her bed.

    Well I think most 14-yr old could restrain themselves from raping and killing a 4-yr old girl, no matter who she is. This 14-yr old is obviously another story and probably will have had some warning signs of "off" behavior that were not taken seriously...no one likes to think there is anything wrong with their kid.
    Just my opinion, of course.

    Exclusive: Father Talks About Teenage Son Accused of Killing, Sexually Assaulting Daughter

    Posted: May 11, 2010 11:18 AM EDT

    A teenage boy is arrested, charged as an adult with First Degree Murder and First Degree Sexual Assault. Investigators believe Christian Wilcox, 14, sexually assaulted and killed his own sister, four-year-old Sierra Wilcox, on Saturday, May 1st. Investigators also believe Christian set the family home on fire to cover the crime. "Supposedly she died of smoke inhalation. She had no smoke in her lungs," says their father, Phillip Wilcox.

    With his son facing charges, Phillip Wilcox says he never saw any warning signs, and he's struggling to understand how it came to this. "What can I say, I thought I had them protected. I thought I lived in a nice place where everybody was protected," he says.

    Wilcox is also struggling with what to tell his other little girl. She's left to go on without Sierra, her sister, her best friend. "It's hard to explain to a 7-year-old. Right now, all she knows is that she's in heaven with my brother," says Wilcox.
