Hearing for mom in fatal fire postponed

CHICAGO Investigators say Erika Ramirez left her children home alone while she went to watch a pool game with her boyfriend. Her hearing was postponed until January 16.

Her house at 72nd and Troy in the Marquette Park neighborhood caught fire last week, killing her 6- and 9-year-old daughters. Two other children survived.

Ramirez is being held on one million dollars bond.
