Maternal Filicide – Molly Delgado Double Homicide: A Study in the Use of NFPA 921 in a Murder Conviction

Maternal Filicide – Molly Delgado Double Homicide: A Study in the Use of NFPA 921 in a Murder Conviction

In 2017, Investigator Harms with the WV State Fire Marshal’s Investigative Division investigated a fire where two children perished. The mother of the children was ultimately convicted and sentenced to two consecutive, life-without-parole sentences.  Fire dynamics, fire patterns, arc mapping and witness statements were all used to obtain this conviction by proving that she set two separate non-communicating fires to the bedding of her two young sons while they slept.

Instructed By: WV Assistant Fire Marshal George Harms
