This chick is beyond stupid… and people need to be held responsible for leaving them kids in a burning house, too:
Police say a Rochester mother arrested in the deaths of her four children admitted starting the blaze that killed them – allegedly telling investigators that she lit pictures of her boyfriend on fire and tossed the burning photos on a dresser filled with combustible materials.
The account, contained in a felony complaint against Bobbie Kugler, 31, released Monday, was based in part on “the verbal statement of the defendant, after being advised of and waiving her constitutional rights, admitting to starting the fire,” the complaint reads. Kugler faces charges of fourth-degree arson and four counts of second-degree manslaughter. Police arrested Kugler on Friday in Poughkeepsie, Dutchess County, where she moved after the fire. Four siblings died in the blaze: Gage Reavey, 14, Greg Kugler, 13, Kandee Kugler, 12, and Kaiden Kugler, 6.
Firefighters responded shortly before 1 a.m. Feb. 18 to 82 Grape St. for a report of burning clothes outside the residence.
That fire now appears unrelated, officials said. Once on scene, crews knocked on the door of the residence, but no one answered.
They walked around the property and still were at the residence about 20 minutes later when they spotted a fire on the first floor that quickly spread upstairs. Firefighters rescued Bobbie Kugler and her 2-year-old son, Tyron Jackson, from the first floor of the residence.
Kugler also has a 3-year-old child who was not staying at the residence at the time, officials said. Family friend James Austin, 25, and two teens – Giovanni Delorm, 13, and Erica Evans’ son, Waltquaries, 15 – jumped to safety.
Waltquaries sustained burns to his head, arm and hand.
Austin, a friend of Bobbie Kugler’s, also lived at 82 Grape St.
The two teens were sleeping over, firefighters said. Firefighters were seconds away from entering second-floor windows by ladder, Fire Department officials have said, but were forced back by the flames and unable to get to the children.
