Child endangerment charges for mom whose kids died in fire


EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (AP) — An East St. Louis woman whose five children died in a fire at her home after she left them alone has been indicted on child endangerment charges.

The Belleville News-Democrat reports that prosecutors sought the grand jury indictment after determining that 34-year-old Sabrina Dunigan was at least partially responsible for their deaths.

Dunigan’s children between the ages of nine and two were killed in the Aug. 6 fire.

A fire department official said at the time that Dunigan had left the home to pick up her boyfriend at work when the fire started.
