Mother accused in fatal DUI crash in which two kids killed appears in court
CABELL COUNTY, WV (WCHS/WVAH) —
A mother accused in a DUI crash that killed her two young children was in Cabell County Court Friday morning.
Siera Burgess appeared in Cabell County Circuit Court for a preliminary hearing.
Burgess is facing charges stemming from a crash on Interstate 64 in Milton in March that killed 1-year old Sarah Cooper and 3-year old Skylor Cooper.
A 7-year-old girl also suffered injuries in the crash but survived. During the hearing, a plea deal was offered, and Burgess must now agree to accept the plea or go to trial. Her next court appearance is scheduled for later this month.
Burgess is currently charged with two counts of DUI causing death and DUI causing serious bodily injuries.
