CD. JUAREZ, CHIH (KDBC) — A mother in Juarez is facing charges after authorities say her three year-old son lit his baby sister's crib on fire, killing her.
It happened Tuesday afternoon. 22 year-old Veronica Janeth Hernandez Acosta is charged with negligence because authorities say she left her children alone for two hours while she went out to buy cigarettes.
The three year-old allegedly used a lighter to start the fire. The 18 month-old was charred with burns on 90 percent of her body.
