DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. - The mother of two children who died after police said she barricaded them in apartment was re-indicted.
Investigators said that in December 2010 ,Johnson and Pinkney locked three of her four kids in a bedroom of a Stone Mountain house with a space heater so they could go to Burger King.
Aliyah, 4, and Devyn Quarles, 3, died. Their younger brother, Marlin, 2, survived but was badly burned.
"The charges are involuntary manslaughter. The charges are also cruelty to children and false statement," said DeKalb County District Attorney Robert James.
Channel 2’s Erica Byfield checked and found that Johnson and Pinkney are no longer in the DeKalb County jail.
Prosecutors said the case could go to trial by the end of the year.
The couple was originally indicted in 2013.
