A mother could be charged with involuntary manslaughter after her three daughters died from being trapped in her hot car.
Law enforcement officials in Rutherford County say they'll ask a grand jury to indict Ann Latrice Miller. The 26-year-old mother found her four-year-old and twin two-year-old daughters in the car last Friday outside their Forest City home.
An autopsy report showed that Asia Shepard and her twin sister Bry'asia Shepard suffered heat-related deaths. Their four-year-old sister, An'niya Miller, was unconscious when the three were found and died later at the hospital. Tests showed the temperature inside the car exceeded 100 degrees.
Authorities say Miller did not intend to kill her daughters, bu the car doors on the four-door Honda Accord were not functioning properly.
