KEARNEY, Mo. - A Missouri woman whose two young children died after being found unresponsive on July Fourth is charged with assaulting her husband in the hours before the children were found.

Jenna Boedecker was charged Thursday with third-degree assault, armed criminal action and first-degree property damage. The Kansas City Star reports that police records indicate the charges stem from an argument with her husband.

Police say Boedecker found her 2-year-old and newborn daughters unresponsive Wednesday outside a home in a rural area northeast of Kansas City. Police haven't said how the girls died.

Police initially said foul play wasn't suspected. But on Thursday, the Clay County Sheriff said a squad of criminal investigators had been called in to help with the case.

No charges have been filed in the girls' deaths.
