WTMJ-TV reports a criminal complaint says Thomas then called 911 and said she had intentionally given her children too much medication and was "sending her children up to God."

Paramedics arrived and rushed the children to the hospital. Their conditions have not been released.

The complaint says Thomas gave her sons ziprasidone (zih-PRAZ'-ih-dohn) hydrochloride, a drug used to treat schizophrenia. Court records do not list an attorney for Thomas.
