2 women, teen charged in fatal Indiana fire

NEW ALBANY, Ind. – Southern Indiana prosecutors have charged two young women and a juvenile in connection with a January house fire that killed three children.

Floyd County Prosecutor Keith Henderson announced Friday he’s charged 18-year-old Shelby L. Makowsky and 19-year-old Kylie L. Jenks with conspiracy to commit arson. A 17-year-old juvenile female faces the same charge.

The Courier-Journal of Louisville, Ky., reports (http://cjky.it/1jFr3MO) the charges come a month after 18-year-old Cody Cashion of New Albany was charged with three counts of murder and one count of arson in the Jan. 4 deaths.

Prosecutors allege Cashion fired a flare from a flare gun through a New Albany home’s window, igniting a fire that killed 2-year-old Trinity Hughes, 4-year-old Tyrese Hughes and 6-year-old Tai’zah Hughes. A fourth child was injured but survived.
