    Oh my goodness. How awful. I am starting to question the common sense of people.

    "There were two gas space heaters running when Johnson left, the fire marshal’s office said. Some flammable material left by a heater in the living room caused the fire, engulfing the single-family, wood-framed house in flames."

    Those poor kids.

    I want to see the mugshot and the hairdo that was more important than the care of her two children.Poor babies,I wonder if they were asleep and died of smoke inhalation.I pray they were asleep and not trying to get out of the door because she locked them in so they would not wander away.

    What's sickening to me is that her FB is filled with condolences from people - sympathy, prayers, words like "tragedy," telling mom to keep her head up. Does no one understand that she lost her kids because of her own selfish actions?

    Mind you, it's equally disgusting (to me) when I see hateful remarks but IMO taking an attitude that this was just some unforseeable event or an unfortunate mistake perpetuates the myth of a neglectful parent being punished "enough" by the loss of his/her kids. I'm glad to see that she's been charged and hopefully will be held accountable for her actions.

    Oh, and I'm waiting to see if someone sets up an online fund for her "loss." Reminds me a little bit of Shanesha Taylor.

    https://www.facebook.com/ciarria.johnson.3

    She told authorities that she had arranged for a neighbor to watch the children -- arrangements that the marshal's office said never existed.
    ...
    Johnson reportedly told investigators that she returned to her home to find the house engulfed in flames, the marshal's office said. But authorities believe she didn't return home until after she was told about the fire.

    Makes me wonder how many times those kids were left alone in the past...

    I am sure a funding page has already been started somewhere for this grieving mom.

    Much like Shanesha Taylor, she will become the victim while the children endangered by the "victim" go forgotten. I can't wait for some person on the web to argue that this happened because she is a single mom or that its the fault of a slumlord landlord or anyone but this mother who consciously choose to leave these babies alone so she could go get her hair did.

    Oh for crying out loud. Will people every learn, children are not suppose to be left alone.. I have so many other words that I can't say on here. What precious little lives gone for something so ridiculously utterly stupid. I don't even like to leave my dog along. RIP little ones.

    Plenty of loving couples who can't conceive would have been far better parents to these two children rather than Ciarria. So tragic.
