mom arrested for fire that killed her children

Sharon Hinojosa, 29, is charged with two murder counts in the deaths of 4-year-old Anthony and 3-year-old Alayna.

Hinojosa had escaped the blaze with the one child she shared with her live-in boyfriend, Justin Whistler. The children killed had different fathers. She and Whistler were reportedly in the process of splitting up.

Hinojosa also has an 8-year-old daughter who lives with her father, neighbors said.

Hinojosa is now being treated at a local hospital after she ingested rubbing alcohol while in police custody.

The mother also was charged with arson of a house. She faces up to life in prison.

Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy said the crime "should send chills up the spine" of everyone.

I had got a desire to make my firm, but I didn’t have enough amount of money to do it. Thank goodness my close friend advised to use the home loans. Thence I used the college loan and realized my desire.
