    How tragic. That poor little boy must have been so afraid.
    I wonder how long this "mother" was without a babysitter for this little boy?

    Why did she have to leave him alone? Wasn't there anyone to help her? That poor little boy, so alone as he died.

    I thought this was going to be one of those cases where the mom killed the child first and then set a fire to hide it.

    I'm not even going to read this article, it's a tragedy. I'm so tired of hearing of children meeting untimely deaths due to their parent's neglect.
    Poor little boy.

    This is a video from her family from NBC 15 in Mobile, AL

    I know what she did was wrong, but I do feel sorry for her, she worked day and nigth to support her sons. She had her 3-month old with her while cleaning. But she was also supporting a good-for-nothing boyfriend too!

    They arrested dad too. Brandon Gurley came home while fire officials were still on the scene. He also was arrested for having a controlled substance. Mom took the three month old baby with her to work.http://blog.al.com/live/2008/04/boy_...ents_char.html
