If officers had not performed life-saving measures, the child’s wounds would have been fatal, hospital officials said. The girl’s mother faces multiple charges.
GAITHERSBURG, Md. — A Maryland woman has been accused by police of trying to kill her 3-year-old daughter, and officers responding to a call are being credited with saving the child’s life, authorities said Monday.
The Montgomery County Police Department said in a news release that Anne Catherine Akers, 28, is charged with attempted second-degree murder, first-degree assault and first-degree child abuse. Akers is being held without bond and was scheduled for a bond review hearing on Monday. It couldn’t be determined if she has an attorney.
According to the news release, a relative making a 911 call on Saturday said they had reached Akers’ home and seen blood on the floor. When officers arrived, they found blood and a pair of scissors and when they located Akers she had a neck laceration. A blanket that the woman was holding covered her daughter, who police said had a life-threatening neck laceration.
Officers performed life-saving measures on the child before emergency personnel arrived and took Akers to a local hospital with serious injuries. A Maryland State Police helicopter took the child to an area hospital, where physicians said that without the action of the officers, the 3-year-old’s wounds would have been fatal.
