Kearney mother fell asleep with children inside car, search warrant says

CLAY COUNTY, MO (KCTV)

A Clay County search warrant says the mother of two children who died last week fell asleep in her car with the children the night before they died. 

Jenna Boedecker-Ribando has not been charged in connection to the death of her girls. 

She was in court earlier this week and stands accused of assaulting her husband the day before her daughters’ deaths.

Boedecker-Ribando found her 2-year-old and newborn daughters unresponsive last week outside a home in a rural area east of Kearney.

Paramedics tried to revive them, but the children were pronounced dead at the scene.

The warrant also states she found the girls unresponsive after waking up the next morning.
