MILLET, Alta. -- The mother of two young boys found drowned in their Alberta home three weeks ago has been charged with two counts of second-degree murder.
Allyson McConnell, 41, was charged by the RCMP on Monday and has been taken into police custody, though she is currently still under 24-hour supervision in a medical facility, where she will stay until doctors clear her to move to a jail.
Jayden McConnell, 10 months, and his two-year-old brother Connor were found dead on Feb. 3 by their father, Curtis, in their Millet, Alta., home. He told neighbours they had been drowned in the bathtub.
RCMP said they cannot release any information about the woman's health, due to privacy legislation.
Her first court date has been set for March 16.
Millet is about 50 kilometres south of Edmonton.
