MARCH 16, 2017: Around this time last year, 2-year-old twin boys were killed in a house fire in New York.  Now you're probably wondering where the mother was during the time of the incident.  According to many reports, Heather Ace, the mother was out visiting a friend and buying marijuana. Around 10:01pm, Heather got a call from her mother saying her house was on fire. The fire started on the first floor and spread according to reports. The firefighters found Micah and Michael, the twin boys in the back bedroom of the home. Heather was charged with two counts of endangering the welfare of a child, but she only pleaded guilty to one of them. Heather has to face one year in jail and will be sentenced in May.

In my opinion, Heather is an unfit mother and if she has another child she should be more nurturing and responsible to the child or children.
