MIAMI -- The state Department of Children and Families says it expects charges to be filed against the mother of twins involved in a grisly highway attack.

Jacqui Colyer, a regional director for the agency, said Thursday that Carmen Barahona is likely to face charges related to an alleged cover-up for her husband, Jorge Barahona.

He is charged with aggravated child abuse for critical injuries to his son, Victor, after the boy was found in a truck parked along Interstate 95, having been doused in a chemical.

The deteriorated body of the boy's twin sister was later found in the bed of the truck.
