Before poisoning herself, the KwaThema mother allegedly tried to poison her two children, aged four and 10 months, at her home in KwaThema.

The 10-month-old died on the way to hospital.

The mother was granted bail at her first court appearance on September 16, two weeks after she was discharged from hospital.
