One-year-old twins Phoenix and Luna died last week in the Bronx after their father, Juan Rodriguez, an Army veteran and VA social worker, forgot to drop the children off at day care before heading to work. Rodriguez has been charged with two counts of manslaughter, criminally negligent homicide and endangerment of a child. His wife has stood by him, clinging to Rodriguez at the twins’ funeral, and calling her children’s deaths “a horrific accident. Mr. Rodriguez told police of the incident: “I blanked out. My babies are dead. I killed my babies.”
