LEWISBERRY, Pa. (AP) - A central Pennsylvania woman accused of slashing her 2-year-old son’s neck is headed to trial on attempted homicide and other charges.

WHTM-TV (https://bit.ly/1fUqKfq) said a district judge in York County on Wednesday found enough evidence against 36-year-old Candis Bradshaw for the case to proceed to trial.

A formal arraignment is set for April 25.

Police said Bradshaw cut the boy on both sides of his neck with a 12-inch butcher knife on Jan. 17 at their Fairview Township home. He spent several days in the hospital.

Investigators said Bradshaw had also stabbed herself in the chest. Court documents state that she had suffered from postpartum depression and was anxious and depressed.

She also faces charges of aggravated assault, simple assault and child endangerment.
