A Kansas City mom is charged with trying to drown her own children, ages one and four.
Wyandotte County Prosecutor Jerome Gorman on Thursday announced attempted first-degree charges against Johnna Green, 23, of 2925 S. 52nd St. in Kansas City, Kansas.
The two girls were rushed to the University of Kansas Hospital Tuesday night where they remain in critical condition.
In court documents, prosecutors say Green held at least one of the children under water for a prolonged period of time until she was unresponsive. Green is being held under $1 million bail and is scheduled for court Friday afternoon.
The children were identified as J.T., 1 year old, and J.G., 4 years old. Gorman said J.T.’s father lived at the home with Green and the girls and has been talking to investigators.
