READING, Pa. - Pennsylvania State Police have obtained a pair of new warrants for their ongoing investigation of the hanging deaths of two children in Berks County.

Homicide investigators said they are still trying to locate a cellphone that belonged to the children's mother, Lisa Snyder, who stands accused of killing her 8-year-old son, Conner, and 4-year-old daughter, Brinley, by hanging them with a dog lead in the basement of the family's home in Albany Township on Sept. 23.

Detectives obtained a warrant to search the infotainment system in Snyder's car for data linked to the missing phone. They obtained a second warrant to check purchase records at the Walmart where Snyder allegedly bought the dog lead.

Snyder was arrested in December and charged with first- and third-degree murder. She is due back in court June 29. Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty.
