CANTON, Ohio — A Canton woman faces murder charges after calling 911 to report she’d cut her children’s throats before cutting her own wrists Tuesday.

According to Canton police, Nicole R. Auman, 31, called 911 at around 9 p.m.

She’s heard in the 911 call saying: “I cut my children’s throats, and then cut my wrists, please help my children.”

When officers arrived to her Miami Court N.E. home, Auman did have cuts to her wrists. Her two female children, ages 10 and 7, had non life-threatening cuts on their necks.

All three were taken to Mercy Hospital for treatment. The children were then transported to Akron Children’s Hospital.

Auman was treated and later booked into the Stark County Jail.

She faces two counts of attempted murder and two counts of attempted aggravated murder. She’s set to appear in court next week.
