Detectives interviewed Cuevas. They say she told them she had been depressed. They say she decided Sunday she wanted to kill herself and take the 1-year-old girl and 3-year-old boy with her.

Apparently the children's father is no longer in the picture.

“Her idea was that she was going to overdose the children on the anti-depressants and hopefully they would go to sleep and then she would commit suicide herself,” Miller explained. “But what happened was one of the children had a bad reaction. Whether she panicked or just by the reaction, she called 911. Thankfully, because the doctors told the paramedics and the police officers that if any more time had expired there's a very good chance that both of the children would have died.”
