A woman was charged with attempted murder after police say she tried to poison and injure her three daughters in west suburban Montgomery in late September.
Pamela J. Christensen, 47, was charged with three counts each of attempted first-degree murder, aggravated battery and aggravated unlawful restraint — all felonies — after stabbing and trying to poison her children, according to a statement from Montgomery police.
On Sept. 25 at 10:50 a.m., authorities responded to the 2300 block of Patron Lane for two 911 hang-up calls, police said.
Police determined that Christensen had tried to poison and injure her three daughters, the statement said. She had also stabbed two of her daughters, police said.
The daughters — whose ages were not immediately known — were taken to Rush-Copley Medical Center in Aurora, where they were treated and released, police said. Christensen was taken to Presence Mercy Medical Center in Aurora and released on Wednesday into police custody.
Christensen was ordered held on $1,000,000 bond Thursday, and is next scheduled to appear in court on Oct. 16.
