Mom Refuses To Leave Jail Cell
LAS VEGAS (AP) — A judge reset a court date for a Las Vegas mother facing felony charges after police say she tossed her two young children and herself out a second-story window.
A jail official told Las Vegas Justice of the Peace Bill Kephart on Monday that 34-year-old Luz Robledo Ibarra refused to leave her jail cell for an initial court appearance.
The judge reset the hearing for June 30.
Robledo Ibarra wasn’t represented by a lawyer.
She was hospitalized with a broken pelvis and other injuries after allegedly throwing her 7-month-old son and 1½-year-old daughter from the window early June 12.
Authorities say the girl and boy were critically hurt.
Police say Robledo Ibarra told investigators that she felt depressed and had trouble sleeping since her baby was born in November.
