HALL SENTENCED TO FOUR YEARS

(Eaton, OH)--West Alexandria’s Chastity Hall was sentenced to four years in prison Wednesday for causing the deaths of her two young children when she decided to go out drinking all night.  Malachi and Malea Bradburn died when fire broke out.  Hall Wednesday pleaded to stay out of prison.  "Nothing fixes what happened already.  I'll never be able to bring Malea and Malachi back for their brothers," Hall said.  Prosecutor Marty Votel explained why he had asked for six years.  "For her wholesale abandonment of her duties as a mother."  Extra deputies had to be called after the sentencing when two families launched profanity-laden insults at each other in a commons area of the Preble County Courthouse.
