DECATUR, Ga. (AP) — A DeKalb County woman and her boyfriend have been indicted for a third time in the deaths of two of her young children.
A grand jury on Thursday indicted Angel Johnson and Keith Pinkney on charges of involuntary manslaughter, second-degree cruelty to children and making false statements.
Authorities say the pair left Johnson's three young children alone in a Stone Mountain apartment with a space heater. Investigators say the space heater caused a fire that killed two of the children
District Attorney Robert James says the case is being re-indicted for a third time because of technical legal problems with the previous indictments.
Johnson's attorney said he couldn't comment because he hadn't seen the new indictment. The public defender's office, which is representing Pinkney, didn't immediately respond to an email.
