PITTSBURGH (AP) — A western Pennsylvania woman has pleaded guilty to leaving her 3-year-old twins who died in a fire when she left the house to see whether her marijuana had been stolen by her 15-year-old daughter.

Dalawna Berran-Lett, 33, of North Braddock, pleaded guilty Monday to involuntary manslaughter and child endangerment charges stemming from the Jan. 4 fire that killed Ky’heir and Dy’heir Arthur.

Police say the boys turned on a burner on a grease-covered stove, sparking flames that soon engulfed the house. Investigators say the boys had previously almost started a fire last December when they tried to cook ribs while they were also left alone.
