Rochester (WSYR-TV) – A Rochester mother who set a fire that killed four of her children was sentenced to seven to 15 years in state prison on Tuesday.

She said she had drunk four or five 40-ounce bottles of malt liquor and downed a handful of sleeping pills before setting the fire.

The fire killed 14-year-old Gage Reavey; 13-year-old Greg Kugler; 12-year-old Kandee Kugler; and 6-year-old Kaiden Kugler.
