Woman Charged After Toddler Dies in Harlan County (KY) House Fire

A woman has been charged after a 3-year old boy died in a house fire Saturday in Harlan County, KY.

37-year old Amanda Brock allegedly left her 11-year old son to watch her toddler nephew alone while she went to watch go-cart races. While she was gone, the house the boys were in caught fire.

The 11-year old ran to a neighbor’s house for help, but left the 3-year old inside.

Brock was the legal caretaker of the little boy, and has now been charged with manslaughter and wanton endangerment.
