A Boone County mother is scheduled to be in court this afternoon to face charges that she left her twin daughters locked
in their Lebanon house while she went drinking. Jackquelyn Wood was arrested Friday when her 2-year-olds were found locked
in their room. Investigators say the girls were alone in the house for about three hours with no food or water. Wood had tied
a nylon strap to the door handle to keep it shut, according to police. Their grandfather discovered them and notified authorities.
