Funeral arrangements announced for family killed in Madison County fire
MADISON COUNTY, Ala. – Family members have announced the funeral arrangements for four family members whose bodies were found after a fire last week. One of those victims was nine months pregnant.
Authorities found the bodies of Carol Jean Smallwood, Kristen Chambers Henderson, her 8-year-old Clayton Chambers and 1-year-old nephew Eli Sokolowski inside a home on St. Clair Lane after firefighters put out the fire that destroyed the home. Kristen was weeks away from giving birth.
The funerals for all the victims will be at Jackson Way Baptist Church in Huntsville on August 22.
The community has arranged a number of efforts to raise money for the surviving family members.
Investigators have not said if the fire caused the victims’ deaths. Kristen’s estranged husband, and his other wife, are facing murder charges in connection with the case. Friday, more charges were added against Christopher Henderson and Rhonda Carlson.
