Why is one suspect a Colorado Mom but the other not an Ohio Dad?

Jamie Paulin-Ramirez, accused by the U.S. government of involvement in a conspiracy to engage in terrorist attacks, is being repeatedly referred to in news reports as a “Colorado Mom” and also as a “Colorado Mother.”

Kristopher Sickles, accused by the U.S. government of involvement in a conspiracy to engage in terrorist attacks, has not once in the press been referred to as an “Ohio Dad” or an “Ohio Father.” This is despite the fact that Kris Sickles stayed home to take care of his kids during the day.
