Parents charged after girl (4) killed by heater
Two parents are reportedly facing charges after their four-year-old daughter was killed by a space heater.
According to the Idaho Statesman, Jennifer Miller (31) and Nicolas Rose (26) were arrested on Wednesday in connection to the death of their daughter, Alliee (4).
The four-year-old died on April 10 in the carpark of Walmart in Boise.
Police said that Alliee had been sleeping in a car with her mother and younger brother Lane when the space heater went on fire.
The mother and boy sustained serious but non-life threatening injuries, but Alliee later died from her injuries.
Boise police in April said the fire was likely caused by a portable heating device being used in the car.
According to the Idaho Statesman, Miller was charged with felony injury to a child while Rose faces a felony burglary charge and misdemeanor petit theft.
Authorities said they believe Rose stole the portable heating device that likely started the fire.
A GoFundMe page was created to cover the 4-year-old’s funeral costs.
“Alliee was a beautiful, carefree little girl who loved her family and her baby brother, Lane,” the page said.
