Mother charged for abandoning her kids who were rescued from a burning apartment

Shanelle Robinson

A fire at an apartment complex on Canondale Street in Lake Independence on Thursday nearly claimed the lives of two children, three year old Shanika Reneau and four year old Shevaun Reneau. If not for the heroic actions of one man, we would tonight be lamenting the tragic deaths of the toddlers trapped in their burning apartment. Investigations showed that the children were locked into the apartment by their mother when she went out. When the fire consumed the small room, neighbor Kenrick Middleton kicked in the door and saved them. But tonight, the mother of the children, twenty-five year old Shanelle Robinson, is in plenty trouble. This morning, she was charged with two counts of child Abandonment and is spending the night behind bars since she was unable to meet bail. Robinson appeared before Magistrate Leslie Hamilton where her charges were read to her. No plea was taken, since the court prosecutor was not sure if the matter would be tired on indictment or summarily. She was offered bail in the sum of one thousand dollars, but was unable to meet it. As for the children, Shanika and Shevaun, they are currently in the custody of the Social Services Department. Both received burns on their bodies in the fire, but the injuries are not considered life threatening.
