Mother of child killed in house fire charged with neglect

OKLAHOMA CITY -

The mother of a 7-year-old boy who was left home alone and died in a house fire has been charged with felony neglect charges.

Prosecutors on Monday filed charges against Noemi Lopez and against her boyfriend, Antonio DeJesus Guillen. According to investigators, Lopez is the mother of Adrian Roberto Avalos.

In April, prosecutors say Lopez and Guillen left Avalos home alone so they could go to a bar. They didn't return until 2:00 AM, at which point the house had already burned and Adrian was dead.

Authorities believe the fire was intentionally set.

Lopez and Guillen are not yet in police custody.
