Wisconsin mother accused of trying to asphyxiate children

A central Wisconsin woman, accused of trying to kill four of her six children, is scheduled for a bond hearing in Taylor County.

Sheriff's officials say the 37-year-old attempted to kill the four children by carbon monoxide asphyxiation. The children are ages 3, 5, 8 and 11.

Sheriff Bruce Daniels said Monday the children are physically OK and are being cared for by family members. Daniels says sheriff's officials are recommending charges of attempted homicide.

The arrest stemmed from a March 8 incident at the family's home in the Village of Rib Lake. Daniels says his department learned of the incident last week.

The sheriff says he couldn't provide any further details because the investigation is ongoing.
