KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) _ A northeast Kansas woman has pleaded guilty to trying to drown her two young daughters in a bathtub.
The Kansas City Star reports 24-year-old Johnna Green, of Kansas City, Kan., entered the pleas Thursday to two counts of attempted second-degree murder. Wyandotte County prosecutors initially charged her with attempted first-degree murder.
Green called 911 last April 2 saying she had just killed her daughters, ages 1 and 4, by drowning them because they were sick. The dispatcher told her to take the girls out of the bathtub, and a police officer who found them unconscious on the floor began resuscitation efforts until an ambulance arrived.
Attorneys in court Thursday did not discuss the girls' current conditions.
Green's plea agreement calls for a sentence of nine years and 10 months.
