TULSA, Okla. (AP) – A woman charged in the deaths of her two young nieces in a Tulsa apartment fire has been sentenced to 10 years in prison.
Twenty-five-year-old Miashah Moses was sentenced Wednesday to 15 years in prison, with five years suspended, on two counts of child neglect. She had been charged with two counts of second-degree murder.
Moses told investigators that she had left 18-month-old Nylah Moses and 4-year-old Noni Moses alone in the apartment to take out trash and visit with a neighbor before returning and finding the apartment on fire. The two girls were transported to Saint Francis Hospital, where they died of thermal injuries.
