    SC - Four kids home alone, die in fire, Hartsville, 24 April 2013

    http://www.centurylink.net/news/read...&cps=0&lang=en

    COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — The mother of four South Carolina children killed in an accidental mobile home fire was charged Friday in their deaths, authorities said.

    Hope Hawkins, 21, faces four counts each of homicide by child abuse and unlawful conduct toward a child, Darlington County Sheriff's Capt. Andy Locklair said. State and local authorities found no signs of arson and think the fire started Wednesday by accident in the kitchen, though exactly what sparked the blaze had not been determined.

    Hawkins was not home when firefighters arrived, and showed up moments later, Locklair said. The woman has given conflicting stories about where she was. No one else was in the home at the time.

    Authorities said 10-month-old sisters Myasia and Kynasia Hawkins and their brothers, 2-year-old Camaron Mason and 4-year-old Delonta Dixon, died of smoke inhalation. All four children were found in a bedroom next to the kitchen, Locklair said.

    S.C. Attorney General Alan Wilson’s office will prosecute the case of a 22-year-old Hartsville mother charged in the deaths of four young children who were killed in a house fire earlier this year.

    From October:

    http://www.scnow.com/news/local/arti...e9851bfc0.html

    Hope Hawkins, the Hartsville mother charged in the 2013 deaths of her four young children, took an Alford guilty plea deal Wednesday...

    Powell said Judge Burch ordered a pre-sentencing investigation and a date for a hearing will be set at a later time.

    Burch did give Hawkins 303 days credit for the time she's already spend in jail toward her overall seven and a half year prison sentence.
