The Solano County District Attorney’s Office has issued manslaughter and child endangerment arrest warrants for the two mothers whose four children died in a Fairfield fire in April. Fairfield police Lt. Darrin Moody said today police and prosecutors will try to locate Shetarra James, 24, the mother of three of the children, and Latisha James, 23. Each are charged with four counts of manslaughter and child endangerment. The children, ages 1 1/2 to 4 years old, were inside a residence at 728 Delaware St. around 9 p.m. April 28 when burning candles on top of a TV set ignited the apartment in the one-story fourplex. Three of the children were found dead in the apartment and the fourth died at a hospital. Investigators said both mothers were outside the apartment at the time. Fairfield police completed their investigation May 5 and sent it to the district attorney’s office. Reports also were submitted by the Child Protective Services, coroner’s office and Fairfield Fire Department.
The Solano County District Attorney’s Office completed the evaluation of the reports Thursday.

  • They both should burn in hell for killing those kids and bein careless, &^%$! if u caint keep ur lights on then u dnt need no kids!

  • Ewwww uhuh. She may be “suffering”, but that’s part of what she has to deal with for letting her baby burn to death! She should have gone back in the house when she saw Slutarra come outside. It is unacceptable to leave any child that young alone for 30 minutes. It’s unacceptable to live with no PG&E too. I don’t wanna hear how hard they have had it either, noone has it easy. Both of em need to worry less about havin a man and more about they kids and this wouldn’t have happened. Those two females make me sick to my stomach!

  • Latisha is a good friend of mine, she has suffered enough, The loss of a child is enough for any mother to grive over! I wish her as well as her family the best. I love you girl, ur in my toughts and prayers.
