Logan woman charged with drugging kids headed to court

BOUNTIFUL, Utah (AP) – A Utah mother accused of drugging her two daughters with an antidepressant is scheduled to appear in court Wednesday. Thirty-five-year-old Reggie Ann Peck is scheduled to be arraigned in 2nd District Court on felony charges of child abuse and administering a substance surreptitiously. Peck was arrested Aug. 30 when deputies found her and the two girls parked for a second day off a road in South Weber. After refusing to unlock the car, police say Peck cut one child’s wrist and begged police to shoot her. When Peck began to slit her own throat, deputies broke the car windows and rescued the children. Court records for a divorce say the Logan woman suffers from bipolar disorder and was supposed to be receiving treatment. She is being held at Davis County Jail.
