Did you remove the eggs from the enclosure? Keeping the eggs in the enclosure with an adult would've made it more difficult to monitor the eggs and the temperature incubating them. And also increases the chances of a snake knocking a egg over.
I've never heard of a ringneck snake eating a baby ringneck but I assume it's possible, especially since some ringneck sub-species will gladly snatch up a neonate snake. A feeding frenzy mistake could easily happen if keeping adults and babies together. If the eggs are with the adult I say separate them as soon as they hatch, neonates will need to be kept more moist than the adult but will still need dry areas in their enclosure so they don't get blisters.
