Two Nashville women have been indicted for murdering a nine-month-old child and injuring five other children from a house fire while they were out at a local nightclub.
According to WZTV, Ryana Davenport and Gevona Smith are accused of giving their six combined children medication to make them go to sleep which allowed them to then go to a local club back in August. The two returned to a scene of firefighters attempting to control a house fire and rescue the children inside.
After two months of investigation, police formally charged Davenport and Smith with murder.
Nine-month-old Jream Jenkins perished in the fire. A two-year-old boy remains in the hospital, but the other four children are in the care of other family members after they were treated for smoke inhalation.
Firefighters say there was no babysitter present when they arrived at the scene and the cause of the fire was from candles the women had lit before they left.
