VALLEJO, Calif. (AP) - Police say a Northern California mother has died nearly two months after the arson fire that also killed her 5-year-old son. The boy’s father has been charged with starting the blaze.

Vallejo police said in a statement released Thursday that 45-year-old Lametricias Seilflood, died of her burn injuries at a Sacramento hospital on Wednesday.

She had been in critical condition since the May 22 fire that killed her son Dayleon Seil-Shuemake.

Police say the boy’s father was arrested three days later and has been charged with murder, attempted murder and arson.

The father, Darrylone Shuemake Sr., has pleaded not guilty to all charges and is in jail awaiting his next court date.
