NORTH VERSAILLES (KDKA) – A mother of two boys who died in a fire in North Versailles in June will stand trial on homicide and other charges.

Kiaira Pollard, 27, is accused of leaving her four and seven-year-old boys home alone while she worked as an exotic dancer.

On Wednesday, her attorney waived her right to a preliminary hearing.

He said he’s asking that she be released on bond, which is unusual in a homicide case.

“It’s a quid pro quo. Basically, we agreed to waive in order for a no objection by the [District Attorney’s Office] when I argue for her bond to be reinstated because right now, Kiaira doesn’t have a bond,” defense attorney Blaine Jones said.

The request for a bond hearing will be heard by a common pleas judge later this week.

For now, Pollard remains in the Allegheny County Jail.
