VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) – A grand jury in Virginia Beach has indicted a woman accused of trying to poison her children to death.

Lorita Aiken was indicted Monday on two counts of attempted first degree murder and two counts of adulteration of food/drug/etc with the intent to injure or kill.

Aiken is accused of putting medication in her children’s food in an attempt to kill them in November. Police say she left a suicide note that read, “You will never hurt me or my children ever again!”

Aiken’s husband came home and found all three unconscious. The children survived the incident.
