(JEFFERSONVILLE) - The mother of two children who died when their Indiana home burned says her fiance told her by phone that he had put the kids to bed when prosecutors say he was actually binding them and setting the fatal fire.

WFIE-TV reports Lisa Lynch testified Monday on the first day of Jeffrey Weisheit's trial in Jeffersonville. The 37-year-old's trial was moved from Evansville to Jeffersonville because of extensive media coverage.

Weisheit could face the death penalty if convicted on murder and arson charges.

The bodies of 8-year-old Alyssa Lynch and 5-year-old Caleb Lynch were found inside the home Weisheit shared with Lynch.

Lynch was at work when fire started in April 2010.

His defense attorney says prosecutors won't be able to prove that Weisheit deliberately set the fire.
