Connecticut won’t file charges
Criminal charges will not be filed in a Christmas morning house fire that killed three girls and their grandparents, a prosecutor said Friday. The fire killed 7-year-old twins Grace and Sarah Badger, 9-year-old Lily Badger and their grandparents Lomer and Pauline Johnson. The girls’ mother, Madonna Badger, and her friend Michael Borcina escaped the fire. Officials say embers in a bag of discarded fireplace ashes sparked the blaze.
