KALAMAZOO, Mich. (WZZM) -- A Kalamazoo County mother will keep custody of her child after a judge threw out a motion to terminate her parental rights.
Last year, Jonetta Woods' four children were left home alone inside their apartment in Kalamazoo.
A fire broke out, killing three of the children.
Her four-year-old daughter survived,and has been living with a relative since.
According to the court, Woods will be monitored closely, and if there are ongoing problems, the court reconsider custody.
A hearing for permanent custody for the child is scheduled for later this fall.
