(WHDH) — A mother is facing intent to murder charges after authorities say she used a knife to cut the necks of her two young children.
Sara Vae Boles, 36, of Inkster, Michigan, was arraigned Tuesday on charges including two counts of assault with intent to murder, two counts of first-degree child abuse and one count of resisting arrest in connection with an incident involving her 1-year-old son and 3-year-old daughter, The Detroit News reported, citing the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office.
Officers responding to a welfare check on Boles and her children around 9 a.m. on Saturday heard a child crying inside the residence and found Boles kneeling over her injured kids in a bathroom, the news outlet reported.
Both children reportedly suffered lacerations to their necks. They were taken to an area hospital for treatment.
Boles was taken into custody after a knife was found in the bathtub, according to the report. A judge ordered her held on $100,000 cash bond.
She is due back in court on Jan. 12.
An investigation remains ongoing.
