LAS VEGAS (AP) - The 22-year-old father of one of three young children killed in a Las Vegas mobile home fire last June has been arrested on felony murder and child neglect charges.

Records show that Shane Gouailhardou also faces a misdemeanor drug charge following his arrest Sunday.

Gouailhardou and 26-year-old Amy Hatzenpiller were indicted last week on felony charges that could get them decades in prison.

Hatzenpiller was the mother of the other two children who perished in the June 15 fire.

She is sought on an arrest warrant.

All the children were under 2 years old.

Authorities allege the two unmarried adults were too impaired by methamphetamine to rescue the children from the burning mobile home at a trailer park in an industrial area several miles northeast of downtown Las Vegas.
