SARNIA—A Wallaceburg, Ont., woman has been charged with two counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of her grandchildren.
Sarnia police told a news conference today that Jane LaMarsh, 48, also faces a charge of attempted murder in relation to her daughter.
Police have been investigating since a car plunged into the St. Clair River on Dec. 3.
LaMarsh and her 12-year-old daughter, Jennifer LaMarsh, managed to get out of the vehicle and make it to shore.
The grandchildren, six-year-old Taiya Talbot and 10-year-old Tyler Bernard, died in the submerged vehicle.
Jane LaMarsh was scheduled to make a court appearance today.
