KALAMAZOO, Mich. (AP) — Police in Kalamazoo are seeking criminal charges against a 26-year-old mother after her three children were killed in a fire while left home alone.

Chief assistant prosecutor Carrie Klein tells MLive.com for a story (http://bit.ly/Yd35Np ) Tuesday that the request for three counts of second-degree child abuse was submitted Friday and is being reviewed.

Three-year-old twins, Te'Niya and Tevin Williams, and their 1-year-old sister, Tyonna Henderson, died in the Feb 18 blaze in a unit at the Interfaith Apartments. They were left with their 4-year-old sister.

Fire officials have said the fire was intentionally set.

Jonetta Woods faces a May 14 trial in family court related to the children being left alone in the apartment.

The Associated Press could not find a telephone number Tuesday for Woods.
