HOUSTON - The grandmother of two victims in a day care fire is disgusted the operator has fled the country.

Her trying to leave the country right now just shows you what kind of individual she is, said Tracy Storms. She is a horrible human being.

The Houston Fire Department confirmed Monday that the operator of Jackie s Day Care was in Nigeria

She is facing one charge of injury to a child in Shomari Dickerson s case.

There is no bodily injury, said his grandmother. He s burned above recognition. We can t even recognize him. This is homicide.

Shomari, 3 years old, was one of four children killed in Thursday s day care fire in West Houston. His little sister, 2-year-old MaKayla, was also in the fire.

She s at Shriner s Hospital in Galveston with burns on 30 percent of her body.

My granddaughter will never be able to wear a bathing suit, said Storms. My granddaughter will never be able to play out on in the sun.

MaKayla s throat has been taken out and is now able to eat on her own.

Storms said she wants Tata back in Texas to face more, tougher charges.

She killed my grandson, says Storms. She didn t just injure my grandson. She killed my grandson and she has totally ruined my granddaughter s life.

Shomari Dickerson s funeral is set for 12:30 p.m. on Thursday at the Earthman Resthaven Funeral Home on the North Freeway.
