Posted: Updated:
SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

A judge issued a ruling Tuesday against a 13-year-old girl who pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter in the fire that killed her sister and cousin. 

Judge Lisa Colbert recommended that the 13-year-old, whose name has not been released, be placed in the state's custody for up to two years and be placed in an out-of-home therapeutic placement. Within 10 days, a Department of Juvenille Justice screening committee will decide what that placement will be.
