BALLWIN, Mo. (AP) - A St. Louis County woman facing criminal charges for injuring her sons by lighting fireworks inside an SUV has been found dead.
 
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that 44-year-old Kara Koriath was found Tuesday morning with a single, fatal, gunshot wound. Investigators found after-death instructions inside Koriath's home, along with a will, suicide letters and a recently-purchased life insurance policy.
 
Police say Koriath intentionally lit strategically-placed fireworks while driving along Interstate 270 in November, causing the SUV to catch fire and crash. Her sons, ages 13 and 16, suffered burns and smoke inhalation.
 
Authorities suspect her motive was to seek revenge on her married lover, who was expected to be driving along the same route. She was free on $200,000 bond.

Parents of students in one Jefferson County school district can expect a letter after a tense incident Tuesday morning.

The bomb and arson team was called to House Springs Elementary after a suspicious was found near the school. Investigators determined the package was a bundle of sparklers. The superintendent of Northwest R-1 District plans to send a letter to parents about the incident.

Just in time for the 4th of July, there are new requirements for anyone looking to purchase fireworks in Belleville.

Consumers have to show proof they have completed a 15 minute safety class. Illinois has a statewide ban on fireworks. Local communities can vote to allow fireworks and other pyrotechnics, but only residents who have completed the test can purchase them.

The Illinois State Fire Marshal has the safety class on their website. The Belleville Fire Department will administer the class and hopes to have it online later this month.
