The kids’ bodies were found in the back of a car five hours after authorities hand out an Amber Alert subsequent to their abduction from their grandparents’ home. Authorities said that the kids were supposed to be in great danger.

Her father said that all he want to say to his daughter who did this, that she is not his daughter any longer and he want her to burn. Her mother has said that she was not surprised to learn of the charges against her daughter, whom she labeled as criminal.
