    NC - Josiah, 2, & Gabriel Hawthorne, 1, die in house fire, Charlotte, 28 Feb 2010

    RIP Josiah and Gabriel.

    Another case of where the system failed these children and it breaks my heart. I am so sick of hearing of preventable deaths. This is very close to where I live in NC.

    RIP Sweet Angels

    Opata, who pleaded guilty to two counts of involuntary manslaughter, had left her children at home alone when a kerosene heater sparked the fire...
