Mom to be charged with attempted murder after AMBER Alert

Mom to be charged with attempted murder after AMBER Alert

When Leeann Rickheit stuffed her car's tailpipe with clothing and left the auto running with both her and her daughter inside, she left a window cracked thinking it would not kill the 3-year-old, she told police in an interview, according to prosecutors. A trooper smashed a window and both were hospitalized.

The mother accused of causing an Amber Alert will face several charges in court Thursday.

The two were found on Thursday morning in a wooded area of Charlton, Massachusetts, which is about 15 miles outside of Worcester, according to Fox News. Troopers smashed a window and pulled Rickheit and the girl out of the auto.

Lee-Ann Rickheit allegedly kidnapped the child from a Worcester home around 7:45 p.m. Wednesday, made threats to kill the girl, and then drove around Central Massachusetts with the child until State Police troopers tracked her down to woods in Charlton around 2:45 a.m.

His message echoed the criticisms in recent days from many conservative news media figures and activists, who blame Mr. Gingrich said a bigger loss is ahead for Republicans if they don't learn a lesson from failing on healthcare.

It was the troopers from the Massachusetts State Police Violent Fugitive Apprehension Section who spotted the mother and daughter inside the running auto parked in the woods in Charlton, according to the Boston Herald.

Both Rickheit and Ella were reported to be conscious and responsive afterwards.

The correct charges against Leeann Rickheit are as yet hazy as state and neighborhood police explore.

Police say the child is in good condition. Rickheit was taken St. Vincent's Hospital in Worcester while the girl, identified as Ella Abbott, was taken to UMass Medical Center in Worcester.
