MEDFORD, Wis. -

A central Wisconsin woman is accused of trying to kill four of her children by carbon monoxide asphyxiation.

Taylor County sheriff's deputies arrested the 37-year-old woman Friday.

The sheriff's office says the arrest stemmed from a March 8 incident at her Village of Rib Lake home. Authorities say the woman allegedly tried to kill four of her six children -- ages 3, 5, 8 and 11 --with carbon monoxide.

The woman is expected to appear in court next week. The investigation continues.
