Sylvester-- A South Georgia woman gets life in prison for the arson-murders of her two young children.

Twenty-one-year-old Tamari Lovett pleaded guilty Monday to two counts of felony murder. Her two children, 3-year-old Xavier and two-year-old Sharesha, were killed in June of last year when a fire raged through their Sylvester home.

Lovett first told investigators she left the children in the care of a friend, but only the bodies of the children were found in the house.
