Latest: Kenosha mom accused of killing her two children enters not guilty pleas
KENOSHA COUNTY — Lucia Hernandez-Alvarez pleaded not guilty on Friday, September 25th to charges tied to the deaths of her two children, three-year-old Alicia Hernandez and one-year-old Javier Hernandez.
The charges filed against Hernandez Alvarez include the following:
- First-degree intentional homicide (2 counts)
- False imprisonment (2 counts)
- Administering dangerous or stupefying drug (2 counts)
In court Friday, Hernandez-Alvarez waived her right to a preliminary hearing. At that point, the judge found there was probable cause to move the case to trial — and Hernandez-Alvarez entered her not guilty pleas.

A mass of Christian burial for Alicia and Javier was held on Friday, September 18th at St. Mark’s Catholic Church in Kenosha. A GoFundMe page has also been set up for Alicia and Javier.
