NEW ALBANY, Ind. - A 19-year-old New Albany woman has pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit arson in connection with a house fire in which three young siblings died.
Kylie Jenks formally entered the plea Monday in Floyd Circuit Court. Under a plea deal, she faces six to 20 years in prison. She's due to be sentenced Sept. 9.
Investigators say she drove 18-year-old Cody Cashion to a New Albany home where he fired a flare inside Jan. 4, igniting a fire that killed 2-year-old Trinity Hughes, 4-year-old Tyrese Hughes and 6-year-old Tai'zah Hughes.
Cashion pleaded guilty to three counts of murder and arson on Friday under a plea deal. A third teen, 18-year-old Shelby Makowsky of Clarksville, also pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit arson and was sentenced in May to 20 years.
