What happens when the accidental death of a child falls on the hands of his father?
Home fires are frequent and fatal -- and the number of kids that get injured or die each year is astonishing.
Here are some scary statistics, according to Safe Kids USA:
•4,000 Americans die each year in fires.
•Approximately 20,000 are injured.
•Nearly 600 children age 14 and under die in home fires each year -- that's 11 kids each week.
But what if the fire was started by the negligence of someone who loves their son dearly?
That's what happens on Monday's episode of "Judge Jeanine Pirro." A mother named K'la Boothman is suing her ex-boyfriend for the death of their four-year-old son who was playing with fireworks he found in the closet while his dad slept. She says their son died as a result of her ex's negligence, however the father (and defendant) says the fire was an accident and he did everything he could to save his son's life.
"I got a phone call from a neighbor after I dropped them off on July 4th saying I needed to immediately call Kevin back because something had happened to Caleb," says Boothman. "I went over there and I called and Kevin answered the phone and said there was a fire and Caleb didn't make it, and passed the phone off to somebody else. And I lost it...my four year-old son died four days after his birthday."
