Canton mom gets 15 years for cutting daughters' throats

911 audio: Woman says she cut her children's throats

CANTON, Ohio -- An Ohio woman accused of cutting her two daughters' necks, then cutting her wrists and calling 911 has pleaded guilty to attempted murder charges and has been sentenced to 15 years in prison.

Court officials say 31-year-old Nicole Auman also pleaded guilty Monday to felonious assault charges and was sentenced in Canton.

Authorities say the Canton woman cut her 7- and 10-year-old girls' necks and her wrists with a box cutter April 4. Stark County prosecutors say the girls had surgery for their cuts and are now doing well. They remain in the custody of county social workers.

The Repository in Canton reports Auman offered no statement Monday explaining her actions. A message seeking comment from her attorney wasn't immediately returned.
