FARMINGTON -- A mother who attempted to kill her two toddlers in 2009 in Cache County has been accused of doing the same thing in South Weber.
Reggie Ann Peck, 35, of North Logan, appeared in 2nd District Court in Farmington on Wednesday. She is charged with two counts of child abuse and two counts of surreptitious administration of certain substance, all second-degree felonies.
The charges stem from an Aug. 30 incident, at which she gave her daughters a controlled substance to make them sleep so she could take their lives and her own, said Davis County Sheriff's Detective Jon West.
West said, "Injuries were found on one of the children consistent with an attempt to take their life."
Peck is being held in the Davis County Jail on no bail. A bail hearing is set for 9 a.m. Oct. 6. Judge David M. Connors also signed a protective order stating Peck will have no contact with her two daughters.
Deputy Davis County Attorney Kathy Sjoberg said in court that no bail is warranted because this is the second time Peck has "tried to kill her children."
Peck is currently on probation in 1st District Court in Cache County. She entered a plea in abeyance in that district's mental health court on Jan. 20 to two counts of second-degree felony surreptitious administrating of certain substance, and two two class B misdemeanors.
A plea in abeyance means if the defendant complies with the terms of probation at the end of probation the charges will be dropped.
