Forest City Mom Charged In Deaths Of Three In Hot Car

A woman whose three young daughters died when they became trapped in a hot car is facing an involuntary manslaughter charge.

Ann Latrice Miller was arrested yesterday and released on 170-thousand dollars bond.

On November 10th, 2-year-old twins Asia and Bry'asia Sheppard and 4-year-old An'niya Miller climbed into their mother's four-door Honda parked outside the family's townhouse near Forest City. Authorities say Miller was asleep inside the house.

Investigators say Miller knew that three of the four doors of her Honda Accord didn't open from the inside. The girls were trapped for as long as 5 and a half hours as unseasonably high temperatures outside reached the upper 70s and topped 100 degrees inside the car. Miller found them in the car at about 1:30 p-m that day.

Investigators don't believe Miller intentionally harmed her daughters.
