A Rutland woman has been charged with the attempted murder of her 3-year-old son.

Rutland Police says the attack happened in April but Kristie Buzzeo, 36, was arrested Monday. She is accused of taking a knife from a neighbor's apartment, locking herself in a bathroom with her little boy, and slitting both of their wrists.

The child was seriously hurt and was rushed to the hospital for surgery.

Police have not said why it took them more than three months to make an arrest.

Buzzeo is set to appear in court Tuesday at 12:30 p.m.
