The mother of three children killed last month in a house fire was arrested on drug charges Monday.
Rhiannon Shirlene White, who is 34, faces two counts of possession of a controlled substance.
Court documents say White had both ecstasy and methamphetamine in her system at the time of the fatal fire.
Documents say White told police she used meth because she was “run down and exhausted”.
White went on to say “I take a couple puffs and I was fine. I was superwoman. I could take care of the kids.”
The kids, ages 17, 12, and 7 died on the second floor December 22.
White and her husband escaped the fire through a second story window.
