Family: Mass. woman accused of slashing kids sick
Family: Mass. woman accused of slashing children had a history of mental health issues
By The Associated Press

SALEM, Mass. (AP) ' Family members of the Massachusetts woman accused of slashing her children's throats and setting fire to her apartment say she has a history of mental illness.

They tell The Salem News (http://bit.ly/GDmGZr) that they didn't see any warning signs before 25-year-old Tanicia Goodwin allegedly cut her 8-year-old son and 3-year-old daughter Sunday night.

Goodwin has pleaded not guilty to assault with intent to murder and arson. She's being held without bail pending a dangerousness hearing Monday.



Her brother, Derek, says she recently asked if she could move to Atlanta to live with him and their cousin, Wayne Cox, who raised the siblings after their mother died in 2003. He says that may have been a sign she was stressed.

Goodwin's cousin, Deborah Cox, says she remembers Goodwin as a "very loving mother."
