PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE) — A Providence mother facing manslaughter charges after her two daughters were killed in a fire is set to appear in court Tuesday.

Ingrid Sandoval, 28, was allegedly going to the supermarket down the road when a fire broke out at her Lucy Street in December 2020. Both of her two daughters, ages 2 and 7, were on the second floor of the home at the time.

Another neighbor explained that he was home at the time of the fire and thought everyone made it out safely.

The Department of Children, Youth, and Families determined that neglect contributed to both deaths.

Sandoval is currently being held on $30,000 bail.
