Sheriff Navarre says Taylor told the dispatcher she was suicidal.

Eventually, Taylor told them that she stabbed her children – a 7-year-old girl and an 8-year-old boy, according to the sheriff.
Deputies found the children lying on the first floor of the home in Springfield Township, just outside of Toledo.

Taylor was arrested at a bench sitting outside the mall, just a few miles from her home.

The sheriff says she has no prior criminal history.

She’s being held in the Lucas County Corrections Center on charges including felonious assault and domestic violence.
