    Looks like NO trial started on May 21st....

    from court site - looks like the trial was delayed, probably because the Judge has not ruled on the Motion to Suppress hearing on 5/15/18.

    05/15/2018 Motion Hearing (11:00 AM) (Judicial Officer Williams, N.Keith)

    05/21/2018 Trial by Jury (8:00 AM) (Judicial Officer Williams, N.Keith)

    05/23/2018 Attorney Time Sheet
    Rudkin $2052 A17600

    06/18/2018 Pre Trial (10:00 AM) (Judicial Officer Williams, N.Keith)

    I do not understand why the Kevin kid is facing such harsh sentencing while the girl could possibly get a lighter sentence? I don’t see any details that lead me to believe he is more culpable than the MOTHER.

    According to one of the articles I read - somewhere up thread - is that he slept in the car that night. He said he didn't notice the girls. And when he got up the next morning he just went back into the house. I guess he should have looked around in the car for the girls and not left them in their the morning he woke up. So he is also culpable of the crime.

    My understanding is that he is the only one who went and turned the car on for the girls, so of course he noticed them. Something is fishy here.

    Maybe this will explain that @19760408

    Texas Teen Napped in Car, Then Allegedly Left Toddler Girls Inside to Die

    I believe the mother should also be charged with murder....

    There is something seriously wrong with the justice system in America, and it's getting worse and worse. By the time these murderers are brought to justice, most of us have forgotten what the case was about and just how horrendous it actually was. We forget the precious little victims because there's new horrors to grab our attention. I don't remember reading about this case until this morning. It sickens me to know either one of these two murderers will ever be free after what they did to these two little ones. Not only were they cooked alive, they were starved of food and water and probably soaked in their own feces. I can't imagine the horror. If found guilty of these horrific crimes, I believe they should be put to death. There has to be consequences for crime, and some are far worse than others. Killing a child, to me, is right at the top of the list! JMO, MOO.

    Franke pleads "Not Guilty" to two counts of murder for Hawkins toddler deaths - Hill Country Breaking News
    Why isn't Hawkins charged with felony murder too? When people in the house told her the girls were in the car crying she said something like "They'll cry themselves to sleep."

    To leave them for 15 hours with no food or water, strapped in car seats screams depraved indifference, which constitutes felony murder.

    Hawkins should not ever bear another child. In April a corrections officer lost his job and probably his marriage over her. Supposedly they had a non-sexual relationship but IMO this man won't be the last one she manipulates. She will get pregnant at the first opportunity.
    Kerr County corrections officer accused of inappropriate relationship with inmate
    No matter what her FB page showed I believe Hawkins did not want to be a mother any more. She was no longer involved with either child's father and IMO they were becoming more and more of a burden to her.

    I find it unusual that it was the 16 year old who ended up sleeping in the car that night - Hawkins' boyfriend at that time. Coincidence? Or manipulation? There's no evidence of a conspiracy but it does make me wonder. All JMOO!

    Franke's trial is scheduled for January 22.

    Where did you read that the 16 year old was a boyfriend? I don’t believe they have said that anywhere.
