DeKalb woman found guilty in children's deaths

Posted: Updated:

DECATUR, Ga. (AP) - A DeKalb County jury has found a woman guilty of involuntary manslaughter, cruelty to children and making false statements in the deaths of two of her kids.

The DeKalb County district attorney's office says a judge sentenced Angel Johnson to 35 years with 20 to serve in prison for the December 2010 deaths.

Authorities say Johnson and her boyfriend, Keith Pinkney, left Johnson's 2-, 3- and 4-year-old children alone, barricaded in a room of a Stone Mountain apartment with a space heater. Investigators say the space heater caused a fire that killed two of the children. The 2-year-old survived but suffered severe burns.

A trial has not yet been scheduled for Pinkney.
