HOUSTON -- Harris County District Attorney Pat Lykos blasted Tuesday the brother of a fugitive wanted in connection with a day care fire that left four children dead and three injured.

Lykos came down on Jessica Tata s brother, Ronald, after he announced the suspect s family was collecting money to aid the surviving victims and relatives of the dead.

At a news conference Tuesday afternoon, Lykos waved before cameras what she said was a registration document for a new business Tata just formed to handle the contributions.

This is reprehensible that somebody would take advantage of the death of these babies, Harris County District Attorney Pat Lykos said.
