Cause of death sealed in Huxley murder case

Posted:
HUXLEY (KWWL) -

Officials aren't releasing the cause of death of two newborn twins found dead in the trunk of a car in Huxley.

The State Medical Examiner says the cause of death has been known for weeks, but the Story County Attorney requested the information be kept confidential. Recent rulings by the U.S. Supreme Court allow the evidence from the January deaths to be sealed for the trial.

The twin's mother, Jackie Burkle, is charged with first degree murder in the case. Her trial is set for August 12th.
