Seabrook mother accused of forcing kids to drink bleach charged with attempted murder
A New Hampshire woman accused of pouring bleach down her children’s throats has been indicted on charges of attempted murder.
Thirty-three-year-old Wendy Wright of Seabrook was charged last month with two counts of attempted murder.
The Portsmouth Herald reported that Wright is accused of making her 6-year-old son and 7-year-old daughter drink bleach at their home June 18. The police said the children spit most of it out and went to a neighbor’s home for help.
Wright, who also drank bleach, was found unconscious. The police said that after she regained consciousness, she said she was trying to kill herself and her children.
Wright’s lawyer has said his client was suffering from untreated or undiagnosed mental illness.
