— An Onslow County mother who lost five children and a granddaughter in a fire was in court Thursday.

Mary Alice Turner turned herself in at the Johnston County courthouse on fraud charges and probation violations.

Turner faces similar charges in other counties, including Sampson County where deputies arrested her before her childrens' funerals earlier in July.

Turner was later released on bond. She is due back in court next month.
