A Perth mother accused of trying to kill her own daughters has pleaded guilty to a lesser charge. The 43-year-old, who The West Australian has decided not to name to protect the identities of her children, appeared in the WA Supreme Court on Thursday where it was revealed that, following negotiations, the State had dropped the attempted murder charges against her. The woman pleaded guilty to two counts of engaging in conduct that was reckless and may result in a child suffering harm as a result of neglect. The offences relate to an incident that occurred at their Butler home between July 26 and July 30 last year. An ambulance was called to the home around 7pm and paramedics took the woman and her two daughters — aged between nine and 13-years-old — to Joondalup Health Campus. The West Australian understands the children suffered from gas poisoning. During the brief hearing, the woman, who appeared via video link from prison, only spoke to enter her guilty pleas and to ask Justice Joseph McGrath if she could appear in court in person at her sentencing hearing. “Can I come to court in person?” she asked. “Yes, certainly you may come to court in person,” Justice McGrath responded. The woman is expected to be sentenced in March.
