KREX News Room
GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. The mother accused of negligent homicide following the death of her two young sons appeared before a Mesa County judge on Friday morning.
Jensen appeared with her attorney's for a motion hearing ahead of her October jury trial.
Multiple witnesses were cross examined by the court to provide facts of the night of the incident.
The defense argued to move the trial to a different venue, a more private location away from the media. However, the district attorney told the judge there's no evidence to show prejudice regarding the media.
Authorities say Jensen's sons, two-year-old William and four-year-old Tyler, were discovered unconscious and unresponsive in her vehicle. William died on the scene and Tyler died in early December, both from hyperthermia.
Jensen is scheduled to be in court for the start of her trial on Oct. 28.
