VICKSBURG, miss. (WJTV) – A woman is being detained in Warren County Jail without bonds after allegedly assaulting and assaulting her three children, according to the Vicksburg Post.

According to Sheriff Martin Pace, one of the children ran to seek help from a relative nearby. When the MPs arrived, the children with wounds were taken to the Merit Health River region and later released. A child suffered a neck cut and is expected to recover.

Smith is currently being detained until she appears before the District Court Judge Marcie Southerland.
