New Hampshire Mom Attempts to Kill Her Kids
Wright faces two counts of attempted murder, carrying a maximum sentence of life in prison, and two counts of first-degree assault.
Wright uttered that she wanted to kill herself and her kids after regaining consciousness from her own dose of bleach, according to Seabrook police.Wright is in custody at the Rockingham County Jail.
“I don't want to live. I really love my kids but I wanted to save them from everyone else,” Seabrook officer Keith Dietenhofer allegedly overheard Wright saying to emergency personnel treating her on June 18 after nine police officers responded to her home.
Wright allegedly held down her children and poured bleach down their throats. She waived her probable cause hearing at the Seabrook District Court on July 29, and the case moved on to Superior Court.
Both children were able to spit out most of the bleach they were given by their mother, who was calling it “medicine,” according to police. After Wright became unconscious, the children went next door and met a neighbor, who called the police after the girl “barged in” the back door and asked “if her and her brother can stay here for an hour while (their) mother is sick.”
“(The) girl said the mother (took) medicine and (the) mother made (the) boy and girl take medicine, too,” the neighbor wrote in a statement to police, according to the police affidavit.
