SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) - Prosecutors in northern Indiana are dropping child neglect charges against a mother whose two young sons locked themselves in the trunk of her car and died.
The St. Joseph County Prosecutor's office says it filed a motion to dismiss charges against Jacqueline Wilk of New Carlisle Monday. Wilk has been tried twice, and jurors were unable to reach a verdict either time.
Prosecutors say they have no additional evidence to present and can't reasonably expect a conviction. A hearing set for Tuesday has been vacated.
Wilks' sons 2-year-old Isaac Dunner and 4-year-old Dominick Wilk died after they locked themselves in the trunk of her car in June 2011.
Prosecutors maintained Wilk only supervised her children for about 15 minutes during a five-hour period.
