MEDFORD, Wis. (WSAU) -- A plea deal has been reached for the Taylor County woman accused of trying to kill her children.
37-year-old Heidi Mann will avoid a jury trial. Online court records from yesterday’s status conference indicate that a tentative agreement has been reached and the matter will be scheduled soon for a plea and sentencing hearing.
Mann is accused of trying to kill four of her six children by carbon monoxide asphyxiation inside of the family car last March. Court documents say Mann tried to kill them believing they couldn’t deal with their parent’s divorce.
The children, ages 11, 8, 5, and 3 all survived.
