MILWAUKEE (WSAU0-Wheeler News)  A mother in Milwaukee is accused of trying to kill her two sons by giving them large doses of a drug that treats schizophrenia. A criminal complaint was filed yesterday against 26-year-old Fallon Thomas. Online court records do not list an initial court date for Thomas, who's charged with two counts of attempted first-degree intentional homicide.

The overdose attempt allegedly took place March 26th. Prosecutors said Thomas gave 15 prescription pills to each of her boys, ages 4-and-8. Officials said she then called 9-1-1 and said she was quote, "sending her children up to God." Paramedics responded, and rushed both kids to a hospital. Their conditions have not been disclosed.
