Mom charged after kids die in house fire

In an unspeakable act, a young mother from Monroe, Louisiana has been charged with the death of her young children, which happened after she left her children alone in her home, which caught fire. Furthermore, Ciarra Johnson told investigators that she had plans for a family member to watch her children at the time the fire began. Sadly, those arrangements were never made, and her children died as a result.

Johnson left her house that day at 1 p.m. for a hair appointment, and the fire began around 3 p.m. It was later found the children were alone since around 10 a.m. Likewise, Johnson had not only left her young children alone that day, but left two gas space heaters on when she left which resulted in the fire. Johnson's two children, Tashae age four, and Clifton age three were killed due to her negligence. Currently, Johnson is being charged with two counts of negligent homicide and will be taken into custody in the next few days.
