An Ohio mother was arrested Thursday night after she stabbed her two children then admitted the assault to authorities, officials said.
“It’s really bad. What the officers witnessed when they walked through that house was pretty horrific,” Lucas County Sheriff Mike Navarre told WTOL-TV of Toledo. “It’s a tough situation.”
Both children, ages 7 and 8, were found alive when law enforcement arrived at the family’s home in Springfield Township, but the woman was not there, WTOL reported.
