BURGAW, N.C. (AP) — Prosecutors say a North Carolina woman charged with trying to drown her four young children in a bathtub made the attempt after a dispute with her own mother.
Mulitple media outlets report a first-appearance hearing was held Friday for 29-year-old Aeisha Milton, who’s charged with four counts of attempted murder.
Assistant District Attorney Jason Smith said the drowning attempt at a home in Willard began as a dispute between Milton and her mother, Geraldine Williams. He says Williams pulled Milton off the children.
Williams tells WWAY-TV that she doesn’t regret calling 911.
