After being on the run for two weeks Kiara Pollard her Lesbian lover, 33-year-old Dayna Kenney both exotic dancers, has turned herself in.
Pollard was accompanied by her attorney when she surrendered to Allegheny police yesterday (July 13). Her attorney described Pollard as “distraught” over the death of her sons.
This is a tragedy for all involved,” said Ms. Pollard’s attorney, Fred Rabner, who accompanied her to police headquarters and later to the county jail. Mr. Rabner said she has been too distraught to provide him many facts about the case.
Despite the charges, he said, “She is also a mother of two children. No matter what she did or did not do, she lost her babies.”
Her two young children died following a blaze that ripped through their Pittsburgh home last month, police said.
KiDonn Pollard-Ford, 7, was pronounced dead after being found beneath a pile of blankets. 4-year-old KrisDon Pollard-Williams was found hiding under his crib, and was resuscitated, but died at the hospital two days later.
The two boys died of smoke inhalation after they became trapped in their apartment behind a steel door that was deadbolted.
“There was a deadbolt on a steel door,” Assistant County Police Superintendent Jim Morton said. “(Firefighters) tried to open that door so many times, but they weren’t able to do so until the fire company came with a ram, and they had to force that door.”
The 27-year-old is charged with endangering the welfare of children and tampering with a fire apparatus, according to WTAE 4 News in Pittsburgh.
GIrlfriend, Dayna Kenney, is not being charged at this point.
Pollard initially told investigators that she removed the batteries from the fire alarm because it kept going off while she cooked.
One of the saddest stories I have ever seen. Ridiculous in every way. So much stuff going through my head. Like, Why would you bolt the kids inside the house. Why would you be living behind a medal door? If your girlfriend could afford to go on the run with you, why couldn’t she babysit the kids? If you are both strippers why can’t you afford child care?
I guess I don’t need to ask if there was family in town.. Probably not.. Some of the saddest stories arise out of poverty and ignorance…
