A New Carlisle mother, charged after her children were found dead inside the trunk of her car, was in court Thursday.

Jacqueline Wilk is facing two charges of child neglect in the deaths of her two young sons.

Back in June of last year, Wilk's sons, Dominick Wilk, 4, and Isaac Dunner, 2, died after getting into the trunk of a car outside the home where they lived with their mom and grandparents.

A forensic pathologist says heat caused the half-brothers' organs to shut down.

Wilk will be back in court December 4 for her next hearing.
