Milwaukee mom charged with trying to kill sons

Posted: Updated:
MILWAUKEE (WKOW) -- A Milwaukee mother is charged with two counts of attempted first degree intentional homicide. 

Fallon Thomas (26) is accused of trying to kill her two young sons with an overdose of medication.  Prosecutors say Thomas gave 15 pills of prescription medication to both of her sons, ages four and eight, last week.

The criminal complaint states Thomas called 911 and admitted to intentionally giving her boys too much medication, as she was sending them "up to God".

Paramedics immediately responded and rushed the little boys to the hospital.  Their conditions have not been released.

The complaint says Thomas gave her sons ziprasidone hydrochloride, a drug used to treat schizophrenia.
