EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (AP) -- Services are scheduled for two East St. Louis children whose mother is facing charges that accuse her of killing them with a shotgun.
   Yokeia Smith, 25, is charged in St. Clair County with first-degree murder in the deaths last Wednesday of Levada Brown, 5, and Yokela Smith, 4.
   The mother is jailed in St. Louis, where she was arrested after police say she hit two pedestrians near St. Louis' Gateway Arch.
   Online court records don't show that she has an attorney.
   Visitation for the two children will be from 1 to 5 p.m. Wednesday at the Officer Funeral Home in East St. Louis.
   Services will be at 11 a.m. Thursday at Mount Olive Missionary Baptist Church.
