Mother Puts Her Kids, Gasoline And Fireworks In A Car - Lights A Match

Though Kara Koriah was accused of trying to kill herself and her two sons with fireworks to get back at her boyfriend, family says she was prepared to fight the charges “tooth and nail.”

The 44-year-old, however, was recently found dead of a gunshot wound in her home, according to FOX 2 Now.

Koriah had been charged with felony assault on her own children after police said she lit fireworks in her moving SUV in order to get the attention of her married boyfriend who traveled that way to work every day. She was allegedly angry because he wouldn’t leave his wife.

The court documents say the woman woke her sons, 13 and 16, by telling them their grandmother had a heart attack, FOX 2 Now reports. Police say she then got them in the car, drove to the interstate and lit a firecracker that ignited gasoline spilled throughout the car as well as other strategically placed fireworks.

The car soon crashed and everyone was hospitalized.

"She was a loving mother and felt the pressure of the media and the people turning their back on her including her friends and her church,” her attorney said.

“She loved her kids - had good intentions and would never harm her children. She pleaded not guilty and was prepared to fight the charges tooth and nail and St. Gerard, her church, and friends turned their back on her - she felt alone and helpless. People judged her without knowing the facts."
