Woman Whose Children Died In Fire Now In Custody Thanks To Osceola County Sheriff’s Office

Date posted - April 1, 2013

Osceola Sheriff Car 72-2Sibley, Iowa — A Sioux Falls woman who is the mother of three children killed in a Sioux Falls fire is in custody, thanks to the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office.

The Osceola County Sheriff’s Office reports that their deputies arrested 34-year-old Rhiannon Shirlene White of Sioux Falls on Thursday on eight warrants from Minnehaha County, South Dakota.

The warrants consisted of 2 counts of Possession of Controlled Substance, a Class 4 Felony, and 6 counts of Contribute to Abuse Neglect or Delinquency, a Class 1 Misdemeanor.

White was located at a rural residence west of Sibley and taken into custody by the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office. White was extradited back to the State of South Dakota the next day.

South Dakota authorities issued an arrest warrant after White failed to show up to court. Prosecutors say they believe White is a danger to herself and is a flight risk.

A judge set White’s bond at $30,000 and issued a bench warrant for her arrest.

The charges she faces are connected with a December 22 house fire that killed White’s three children — 16-year-old Michael Hensley, 12-year-old Savannah Coon, and 6-year-old Alivia Coon.
