The estranged wife of a pastor from suburban Chicago has been charged with attempted murder for allegedly trying to poison her three daughters and stabbing two of them so they could ‘meet Jesus Christ.’
Pamela Christensen, 47, from Montgomery, was ordered held on $1million bail Thursday in connection to the September 25 knife attack.
Police officers who responded to the Christensens’ home in the 2300 block of Patron Lane after getting two 911 hang-ups were met at the door by the mother of three, whose white shirt was splattered with blood.
The 47-year-old dropped to her knees in front of the officers and told them she had tried to kill her daughters, according to court documents.
Two of the girls were found upstairs with stab wounds to the chest. Their mother also knifed herself in the chest and abdomen.
Mrs Christensen was taken to an area hospital for treatment, where she remained until Wednesday.
Following her release, the married mother of three was charged with first-degree attempted murder, aggravated battery and aggravated restraint. She is due back in court October 16.
