Grand Jury accuses parents in death of three children in mobile home fire
Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- "I miss him so much," said Darlene Jones who is still grieving the loss of her beautiful grandson, 2-year-old David. He died along with two other children in a mobile home fire.
"It's the cause of the fire that got us all puzzled," Jones said.
Now, six months after the fire, Jones is getting some answers about what happened that day. The Grand Jury released a report that accuses two parents, Amy Hatzenpillar and Shane Goualihardou, with second degree murder and child endangerment. Goualihardou is the father of Jones' grandson.
"This was one of the worst cases of child neglect and child endangerment that I've seen," District Attorney, Steve Wolfson, said.
In the report, the Grand Jury said the parents were high on methamphetamine when the fire started. The parents escaped, but the report said the drugs "caused them to be too impaired to care for and supervise their children" who were left inside the trailer.
"I was told that two of the kids were huddled in the hallway and one of them was in the crib in the back room," Jones said.
Jones said she always wanted the parents to take responsibility for the children's deaths. With the Grand Jury report she may have some closure.
Wolfson said there is a warrant out for the parent's arrests.
