SALEM, Mass. (AP) ' A Massachusetts mother has been charged with attempted murder after firefighters responding to a blaze at her apartment found her two young children with their throats slashed.

The Essex district attorney's office said in a statement that 25-year-old Tanicia Goodwin is expected to be arraigned Monday in Salem District Court on two counts of assault with intent to murder, two counts assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and arson.

Authorities say the children ages 3 and 8 were flown to a Boston Hospital in critical condition after they were discovered at about 9 p.m. Sunday.

Several other apartments in the building were evacuated.

Authorities did not say what prompted the situation. It was not clear if Goodwin had a lawyer.
