Killer: Jackie Burkle allegedly killed her newborn twin daughters and abandoned them in the trunk of her car

An woman allegedly killed her newborn twin daughters and abandoned them in the trunk of her car, after giving birth at home.

Jackie Burkle, 22, of Huxley, Iowa, has been charged with two counts of first-degree murder after police found the infants' bodies in her car.

Incredibly the car was parked in front of her home, across the street from the police department in the town of about 2,800 people, about 20 miles north of Des Moines.

According to court records, police went to the duplex where Burkle lived after receiving a call to check on her.

Court records show Burkle was seen January 5 at work and 'appeared to be pregnant.' She was seen at work two days later and did not appear to be pregnant 'with a completely different appearance.'

Police have released few details but said Wednesday that Burkle lived with her parents.

Huxley Police Chief Mark Pote said Burkle is not married and that investigators were working to identity the children's father. Burkle has no other children, he said.

He would not say how the children died.

'There's going to be a lot of unanswered questions for everyone, including law enforcement, for a while,' the chief said.

Autopsies were performed Monday but final results, including lab tests, will not be available for four to six weeks.

House of horror: Incredibly the car was parked in front of her home, across the street from the police department

Under arrest: Police went to the duplex where Burkle lived after receiving a call to check on her

Burkle made her initial court appearance Wednesday and was being held in the Story County jail on $1 million bond.

Bill Walljasper, a spokesman for Casey's General Store, said a co-worker of Burkle's called police after noticing a physical change in her appearance and became concerned about her health.

He said Burkle, who had worked at the store for more than six months, was scheduled to work the day police were called. She had come into the store but Walljasper said he didn't know if she came in to work or as a customer.

The store is only a few blocks from Burkle's home.

'It's a very tragic event,' he said. 'It's a very hard one to cope with.'

Shocking: Colleagues at the convenience store where Jackie worked noticed that she was no longer pregnant

Michael Motsinger, special agent in charge with the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation, said the infants survived the birth but he did not know if they were full-term.

Court records show when police arrived at her home Burkle agreed to go to a hospital and have a blood test that indicated she had been recently pregnant. She acknowledged she gave birth to twins and told officers where to find the bodies.

She also acknowledged that she 'acted or committed certain acts to terminate the lives' of the babies on January 6, court records show.


Motsinger declined to elaborate on how the infants were killed, citing the ongoing investigation.

A preliminary hearing was scheduled for January 20. If convicted of first-degree murder, Burkle would face a mandatory sentence of life in prison without parole.

NEVADA, Iowa – A woman deliberately killed her two newborn girls not long after giving birth last week and left them in the trunk of her vehicle, authorities say.

Jackie Burkle, 22, of Huxley, Iowa, appeared in court Wednesday after her arrest Tuesday on charges of two counts of first-degree murder. Bond was set at $500,000 on each of the two counts. If convicted, she will spend the rest of her life in prison.

Burkle admitted killing the children, police said in a criminal complaint. No information has been presented about how far along she was in the pregnancy when she gave birth, how long the babies were alive before they died, or where Burkle was when she gave birth.

"The defendant further admitted that she intended to end their lives and was not at any time intending that they would live," Huxley Police Chief Mark Pote wrote in his complaint.

Investigators said they believe Burkle killed the twin girls around 7:30 a.m. Friday. Police went to Burkle's apartment the next morning after a co-worker told authorities that the woman had appeared pregnant at work Thursday but did not look pregnant Saturday.

Authorities haven't said where Burkle works. (Yes, they Have!)

After receiving the tip, officers spoke with Burkle, who agreed to go to the hospital for a blood test, which showed she had recently been pregnant, according to the complaint.

During a second interview, Burkle told investigators where she had put the two bodies, and police found the twins dead in the trunk.

The state medical examiner's office performed autopsies Monday, but will not release final results until pending laboratory tests that could take four to six weeks.

A large hand-lettered sign on the front door of the two-story brick duplex where Burkle lives admonishes, "Private Property. If this were your family, you wouldn't want you here either. Please respect our privacy."

Iowa has a safe-haven law that grants immunity from prosecution to parents who leave unwanted babies up to 14 days old in the care of health facilities. More than a dozen people have done so.

It was spurred by the death of a child who became known as "Baby Chelsea."

Nicole Plum, a Chelsea, Iowa, teenager, spent three years in prison after abandoning her infant girl in the snow near the city's water tower, where the baby was found dead in February 2001.

Plum, who was 17 when she gave birth, was sentenced to 10 years in prison for felony child endangerment and involuntary manslaughter. She was granted parole in 2005.

NEVADA, IA. — Jackie Nichole Burkle said little during a Wednesday morning court appearance, five days after police say the 22-year-old who worked at a Huxley Casey’s store deliberately killed her newborn twin daughters.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Burkle stood silently in a Nevada courtroom listening to Story County District Associate Judge Lawrence Jahn explain the first-degree murder charges against her. Her bond was set at $1 million.

Burkle answered “yes” to one question, in a voice barely above a whisper.

A preliminary hearing was set for Jan. 20. If convicted of first-degree murder, Burkle would go to prison for life. (WHY not the DP)?????

Story County Attorney Stephen Holmes told the judge that he would ask for any search warrants that may have been issued to be sealed if they are returned.

Much about what happened to Burkle’s daughters before she allegedly left them in the trunk of her vehicle has not been publicly revealed.

Asked Wednesday to explain more about the case, Holmes said he could not release any new facts.

The court appearance also included nothing new about how far along Burkle’s pregnancy was when she gave birth, how long the babies were alive before they died, or where Burkle was when she gave birth.

Some of Burkle’s family members were in the courtroom and did not speak to the news media.

An emailed statement attributed to family members says: “The events of the past few days have been incredibly devastating. This is only the beginning of a very long and painful process. However, the family of Jackie Burkle does not have any comment at this time. We ask for members of the media and the public to respect our privacy as we deal with this tragedy.”

A vigil for the twins, planned by community members, is to be held Sunday at 2 p.m. in the parking lot of the Huxley police station, just across the street from the driveway where officers found the bodies.

Investigators said they believe Burkle killed the twin girls around 7:30 a.m. Friday.

Police went to Burkle’s apartment at 514 N. Main Ave. on Saturday morning after a co-worker told authorities Burkle had appeared pregnant at work on Thursday, but did not look pregnant Saturday. Casey’s General Stores officials said Burkle had been an employee for about six months.

A neighbor who lives just down the street from Burkle’s residence said the town has been shocked by the revelation. “This is such a quiet town. Nothing happens here,” said Bob Jackson. “I understand she worked at the north-side Casey’s, so I’ve probably talked to her before.”

He said he wished the girls could have been put up for adoption.

“There are so many people who would love to adopt and can’t,” he said. “I think it’s just a picture of the world we’re living in. It happens worldwide, but it’s a shock when it’s so close to you.”

Employees of the Casey’s store where Burkle worked referred all questions to corporate offices.

Casey’s Chief Financial Officer Bill Walljasper said employees are cooperating with investigators.

Burkle was arrested Tuesday after she admitted killing the children, police said in a criminal complaint. Authorities have not said how the babies died, just that Burkle “acted or committed certain acts” to end their lives.

Burkle graduated from Northeast Hamilton High School in 2008, the principal confirmed. He declined to comment further.

Family of accused Huxley mother issues statement
3:24 PM, Jan. 11, 2012
Written by
TOM ALEX

NEVADA, Ia. -- The family of a Huxley woman accused of deliberately killing her twin daughters shortly after their birth asked for privacy in a statement issued Wednesday afternoon.

"The events of the past few days have been incredibly devastating," said the family of Jackie Nichole Burkle, 22. "This is only the beginning of a very long and painful process. However, the family of Jackie Burkle does not have any comment at this time."

No new information emerged this morning during Burkle's initial court appearance.

Bond for Burkle was set at $500,000 on each of the two counts of first-degree murder she faces. A preliminary hearing was set for Jan. 20. If convicted, she faces life in prison.

Burkle stood quietly in the Story County courtroom as the judge explained the charges against her. She answered “yes” to one of the questions the judge asked her.

Some of Burkle’s family members were in the courtroom and did not speak to the news media.

Story County Attorney Stephen Holmes told the judge that he would ask for any search warrants that may have been issued to be sealed if they are returned.

No information was presented during Burkle’s court appearance about how far along she was in the pregnancy when she gave birth, how long the babies were alive before they died, or where Burkle was when she gave birth.

Burkle, of Huxley, is accused of deliberately killed her two newborn girls not long after giving birth and leaving them in the trunk of her vehicle.

Investigators said they believe Burkle killed the twin girls around 7:30 a.m. Friday.

A neighbor who lives just down the street from Burkle’s residence said the town has been shocked by the revelation. “This is such a quiet town. Nothing happens here,” said Bob Jackson. “I understand she worked at the north side Casey’s, so I’ve probably talked to her before.”

Twin newborn girls found dead in trunk

First, I’m going to start this story off with a link to the Iowa Department of Human Service, Safe Haven Act website. The website that 22-year-old Jackie Burkle of Huxley, IA obviously never went to or looked at. She gave birth to twin baby girls at home and they died. Authorities later found the dead babies in the trunk of aforementioned piece of shit’s car. It is not known yet what caused the babies’ deaths, pending the autopsy results that can take weeks. But it is known that the babies were born alive.

But what authorities do know is that that selfish c**t deliberately and intentionally killed the babies. In fact, Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation agent Michael Motsinger was quoted saying, ”Miss Burkle indicated she didn’t intend for the kids to live after they were born. And she took — did — certain acts to make sure the lives of those newborns were terminated.”

Seems that Jackie was at work in the days before the twins’ birth, looking visibly pregnant in early January and came back two days later looking much different – aka she’d given birth and was back to work. So it would seem that she gave birth, killed the babies, then got back to work. All the while, her daughters were dead in the trunk of her car. What in the f**k? Well one of her coworkers smelled a rat and called the po-po. They went to do a wellness check on her and found that she’d given birth.

More searching uncovered the babies’ bodies. What shocks me to my core is that this bitch lived with her parents. Where the f**k were they? Didn’t they know she was preggo? How did she give birth at home and they didn’t know? A lot of unanswered questions right now.

She’s been arrested on two counts of first degree murder and is being held on a $1 million bail at the county jail.

She faces life in prison if convicted. Unfortunately, Iowa does not have the death penalty. In my opinion, death is actually too good for this bitch. I hope she gets life. Starting at 22 years old? That’s a long f\'ing sentence to serve and hopefully she never gets a break from nightmares and visions of snuffing out the lives of her two baby girls for the next 60+ years.

Hats off to the coworker for reporting her ass. If she hadn’t, this c**t would likely gotten away with a double murder.

She did not take advantage of the Safe Haven Act, which allows mothers to drop their newborns off at hospitals or fire stations with no risk of criminal charges. I just don’t f\'ing get how these selfish twats that kill their newborns don’t f\'ing get that this is the easiest way to walk away from unwanted babies. Now she faces a life behind bars and the babies are dead. No one wins, right?

RIP baby girls… I can only imagine how beautiful you were.

Autopsy information in death of Huxley twins may not answer all questions
9:32 AM, Jan 18, 2012 | by Tom Alex

The public may never know why a Huxley woman allegedly killed her newborn daughters even after additional information becomes available, the town’s police chief said today.

“I know there are still a lot of questions,” said Huxley police Chief Mark Pote. “Twenty years from now there may be questions, like why did it have to happen.”

“We’re still not completely done with the investigation,” Pote added. “We’re still waiting the final autopsy report and it could be six to eight weeks.”

He said no additional charges are anticipated at this time.

Jackie Burkle, 22, of Huxley, is accused of deliberately killing her newborn girls not long after giving birth and leaving them in the trunk of her vehicle. Investigators said they believe Burkle killed the babies around 7:30 a.m., Jan. 6.

Police went to Burkle’s residence at 514 N. Main Ave., in Huxley on the morning of Jan. 7 after a co-worker told authorities Burkle appeared pregnant at work on Jan. 5, but did not look pregnant on Jan. 7.

Burkle could have handed the infants over to workers at any health care facility staffed around the clock with no legal consequences under Iowa’s safe haven law. The incident caused social service workers to discuss better ways of reaching pregnant women in crisis.

Chief Pote said he did not ask Burkle if she was aware of the safe haven provision. WHY NOT???

Burkle’s family asked for privacy in a recent statement released to the news media, which has been going door-to-door in the Huxley neighborhood since the incident first was reported. “The events of the past few days have been incredibly devastating,” the family said. “This is only the beginning of a very long and painful process. However, the family of Jackie Burkle does not have any comment at this time.”

Among the questions still unanswered are:

How were the babies killed? How long were they alive? Where did it happen? Was anyone else there when the babies were delivered? Were they full term?


Burkle was arrested Jan. 10. She admitted killing the babies, police said in a criminal complaint.

Employees of the Casey’s General Store where Burkle worked referred all questions to corporate offices. Casey’s spokeksman Bill Walljasper said Burkle worked at the store in Huxley about six months.

Dozens Gather to Mourn Twins' Deaths

Story Created: Jan 16, 2012 CST
Story Updated: Jan 16, 2012 at 11:57 AM CST

HUXLEY, Iowa (AP) - About three dozen people gathered in central Iowa to mourn the deaths of two newborns.

Police say the twin girls were killed by their mother.

Many of the mourners know Jackie Burkle, who has been charged with two counts of first-degree murder. Officers found the twins' bodies Jan. 7 in the trunk of Burkle's car in Huxley.

She remains in custody, pending bail of $1 million. Her lawyer has not returned calls seeking comment.

Amy and Scott Ashby drove an hour from Iowa Falls on Sunday to join the mourners in Huxley. They knew Burkle from their years in Alden, where all three had lived.

Amy Ashby says "the Jackie that we grew up with is not the Jackie that would have ever done this."

🇳🇴 She lived with her parents. Wonder what they will say when they finally speak.

As the lady in the video said, she would have taken them. So many people want to adopt children in this country, why would this woman do this.

Two words: Casey Anthony. Kills kids and puts them in the trunk.

This was most def pre-meditated. She even admitted she did not want them and planned to kill them early on. But, really..she is Stupid to think she could go to work carrying twins and no one would think she was pregnant, then show up two days later sans the big tummy. She is either ignorant, crazy or both.

And, just like TMLS, her parents/family HAD to KNOW she was pregnant. Were they in denial like Spindy? I w/Never understand these people!

I know someone that gave birth at age 15 and she did a very good job of hiding her pregnancy from her parents. Wore tight girdles and looser tops. She was able to hide it for a good 7 months and finally a sibling told on her. She was even in a Catholic School, but school was out for the summer, in her favor. Sibling told before school started so this girls parents would not put out the big bucks for a private education. School started in September, baby was born in November. So, it can be done. confused

I agree, but she was carrying TWO. She HAD to be huge. She seems to be somewhat big boned so who knows?

I agree. I bet she never saw a doctor, ignored the pregnancy, watched TMLS's trial and thought, "No big deal..I'll just suffocate them (this hasn't come out yet but I would bet that's how they died) and put them in the trunk.

I think this girl is a sociopath..just like TMLS. Only stupider.

Normal Trial Set For Mom Accused Of Killing Twins

Post by Wrapitup on Tue Feb 14, 2012 1:44 am

POSTED: 5:22 pm CST February 13, 2012

NEVADA, Iowa -- An April trial is scheduled for a central Iowa woman accused of killing her newborn twin daughters and hiding their bodies in the trunk of her car.

Court records show 22-year-old Jackie Burkle, of Huxley, is to stand trial on two counts of first-degree murder beginning April 3 in Story County District Court.

She entered a written plea of not guilty on Jan. 30.

Police found the babies' bodies in the trunk of Burke's car on Jan. 7 after receiving a call to check on her. Court records show Burkle appeared pregnant at work at a Huxley convenience store Jan. 5. She no longer looked pregnant two days later, prompting a co-worker to call police.

How in the HELL can she plead "Not Guilty"?
Did her babies just vanish from her womb and magically reappear in the trunk of her car?
Or let me guess she's gonna claim the Nanny Casey Anthony put them there!

She already told LE what she did, so pleading Not Guilty makes ZERO sense!

Wouldn't that just be changing the point in time that she ended their lives? JMO

TWIN DEATH: Burkle trial to remain in Story County

This week new details in the case against Jackie Burkle emerged as the contents of a sealed search warrant were released.

We want to warn you, some of these details are disturbing.

Jackie Burkle appeared in a Story County courtroom Friday. The 22-year-old is accused of murdering her newborn twins earlier this year.

Her attorney argued that media coverage of her client’s case has been relentless, saying, “The media coverage in central Iowa has been extensive. Everytime a motion is filed; there is another media article that reiterates the information that has been previously reported in the case.”

And that’s tainted the potential jury pool in Story County, she argues, saying community members have already formed their own opinions.

Burkle’s attorney says, “They have made comments in the news articles, calling her a monster, saying she deserves to die, and clearly, clearly developing judgments about her.”

This week, more details about the case became public knowledge.

According to court records: police were initially tipped off by Burkle’s co-workers at the Casey’s in Huxley, who said Burkle appeared to be pregnant on January 5th, but not on January 7th.

Burkle kept denying she had ever been pregnant.

Authorities got Burkle to take a test at the hospital that proved she had been pregnant.

Then investigators asked more questions about the babies.

Huxley’s police chief stated: “I told Jackie that we needed closure on this and her baby needed closure. I asked Jackie where her baby was. I asked if it was in the house… I asked if they were in her room, Jackie was quiet. I asked if they were in the house and she was quiet. I asked if they were in her car and she nodded her head. I asked: the trunk? And she nodded.

That’s where Burkle’s twin infant girls were found dead, wrapped in towels inside a duffel bag.

The bag also had a razor blade in it.

Despite these details emerging, a Story County judge denied Burkle’s request to move her trial elsewhere.
Judge Michael Moon said, “It’s incumbent upon the defense to show that there is a substantial likelihood that a fair and impartial jury pool cannot be derived from the people in this county. The defendant has not met that burden.”

Burkle is facing two counts of first degree murder. Her trial is scheduled for April 3rd.

Cause of death withheld for Iowa newborn twins

April 4, 2012
Associated Press

NEVADA — Authorities aren't releasing the cause of death of newborn twin girls found in the trunk of a car in Huxley in January, citing rules of evidence and recent rulings by the U.S. Supreme Court to keep such information confidential.

The Ames Tribune says Dr. Dennis Klein of the state medical examiner's office says the cause of death has been known for weeks. But he says he can't release the information, typically regarded as public records, on orders from Story County Attorney Stephen Holmes.

Holmes says the information is included in a listing by prosecutors of witnesses and what those witnesses will testify about. He says it, like medical examiners' reports, is a non-public record.

The twins' mother, Jackie Burkle, is charged with first-degree murder. Her trial is Aug. 12.

Normal Iowa mom pleads guilty in death of newborn twins

Post by Wrapitup on Sat Aug 18, 2012 1:52 am

Updated 12:25 p.m., Thursday, August 16, 2012

NEVADA, Iowa (AP) — A central Iowa woman charged in the deaths of her newborn twins pleaded guilty Thursday to two counts of second-degree murder and was sentenced to 50 years in prison in a plea deal with prosecutors, the Ames Tribune reported (http://bit.ly/QG8rsb ).

Jackie Burkle, 22, of Huxley, was charged with first-degree murder in the deaths of her twin girls in January. Her trial had been set for September.

Defense attorney Maria Ruhtenberg said Burkle was sentenced to 50 years in prison on each count of second-degree murder, to be served concurrently.

Burkle did not make any statements during the hearing in Story County District Court, Ruhtenberg said. Ruhtenberg declined to comment specifically about the plea deal.

According to a motion to amend the charges against Burkle, County Attorney Stephen Holmes reduced the charges in exchange for Burkle's agreement to plead guilty, the newspaper said.

The amended trial information was approved by an order from District Court Judge Michael Moon.

Police found the twin girls' bodies on Jan. 7 in the trunk of Burkle's car, which was parked in front of her home, across the street from the police department. Authorities have not released the cause of death.

Huxley, which has about 2,800 people, is about 20 miles north of Des Moines.

According to court records, police went to the duplex where Burkle lived after receiving a call to check on her. Court records show Burkle was seen Jan. 5 at work at a convenience store and appeared to be pregnant. She was seen at work two days later and did not appear pregnant.
