NH Mom Accused Of Forcing Her Kids To Drink Bleach Held On 200K Bail

SEABROOK, N.H. (CBS) — A Seabrook mom is behind bars, accused of forcing her two young children to drink bleach.

Wendy Wright, 33, is being held on $200,000 cash bail after her arraignment Wednesday.

Wright has been in a Boston hospital since the June attacks on her children, both under the age of 13.

Seabrook Police had said Wright would be arrested as a fugitive from justice once she left the hospital.

She faces charges in New Hampshire for two counts of attempted first degree assault.

If convicted, she faces up to fifteen years in prison for each count.

Police say the two children were injured, but have since been released from the hospital.

If she makes bail, Wright is to stay away from her two children and husband.

Wright will be back in court July 24.
