Sara Vae Boles, 36, was charged with two counts of assault with intent to murder, two counts of first-degree child abuse and one count of resisting and obstructing.

Police say they were called to her home for a welfare check on Jan. 1 and heard a child crying. They forced their way inside the home and found her in the bathroom kneeling over her children. They also found a knife.

According to police, Boles used the knife to cut their necks.

Both children were taken to the hospital. The 3-year-old daughter was released and expected to make a full recovery while the 1-year-old boy still remains hospitalized.

Boles was arraigned in court and given a $100,000 cash bond.
