Prosecutors: Seabrook mom forced children to consume bleach
Wendy Wright, 33, of 15 True Road, will face two counts of attempted first-degree assault when she is released from a Boston hospital where she is undergoing treatment for unspecified injuries.
Rockingham County Attorney James Reams announced the charges on Friday morning, a little more than a week after a medical call was made from Wright's home.
Police and emergency medical technicians were called to the home around 7 p.m. last Tuesday night.
Reams said on Friday morning that Wright attempted to cause "serious bodily injury" to the two children, ages 6 and 7, whose custody will now be resolved through the family court.
Wright is still being held in a Boston hospital.
She is expected to be arrested by Massachusetts authorities as a fugitive from justice, and subsequently returned to New Hampshire once she is released from the hospital, according to Reams.
"This investigation is ongoing and Seabrook detectives are following up on many leads. Final charging decisions will be made after all leads have been followed to their logical conclusions," Reams said in a released statement.
Wright faces up to 7 ½ to 15 years in prison and a $4,000 fine on each of the first-degree assault charges.
