OKLAHOMA CITY -- The mother whose three children died in an RV fire in Del City is five months pregnant.

Stephanie Dunham and her husband, Chris Dunham, were arrested Friday, Feb. 11. Prosecutors charged them both with three felony counts of child neglect and one count each of possession of drug paraphernalia. Stephanie Dunham is also charged with one count of obstructing an officer.

The D.A.'s office filed those charges because investigators say Stephanie Dunham was high on methamphetamine when her children -- Christopher, 4, Crystal, 3, and Kaylee, 1 -- died in a fire in January.

A Del City Police Department spokesperson has confirmed Stephanie Dunham is pregnant with her fourth child. There's no word on what will happen to the baby once Dunham gives birth.
