Wis. mom whose 3 kids died in fire gets 18 years

MILWAUKEE (AP) — A Wisconsin woman whose three children died in a house fire after she left them alone has been sentenced to 18 years in prison.

Twenty-five-year-old Angelica D. Belen, of West Allis, was sentenced today in the April 11 deaths of her 5-year-old daughter, Nayeli Colon, and her 4-year-old twin sons, Adrian and Alexis Colon.

Court documents say the children had been locked in a bedroom for hours before they died. Belen told investigators she locked them in the room because she needed to go to a new job and didn’t want them wrecking the house or getting outside where neighbors would see they were unattended.

Child welfare workers had repeatedly warned Belen about leaving the children alone, and she had previously been charged with child neglect.

Child Welfare failed again to protect children. Child Welfare needs a over haul in every city & every state instead of trying so hard to keep families together . try taking kids out of neglected homes. And foster homes needs over hauls, I'm sick of Seeing Kids Dying by adults hands. either Parents or Foster Parents. These Kids should Of been taken out of that home. Some People Should be castrated, by law.......................
