JOHNSON COUNTY, KS (KCTV) -

An Olathe woman involved in a custody dispute with her ex-husband was charged on Wednesday after she allegedly gave her three children a hazardous substance before taking it herself.

Therese Roever, 37, was charged with attempted capital murder.

Officers were called to the family's home on Monday in the 1700 block of N Lennox Street, where they found Roever and her three children needing medical attention, police said.

Information Roever gave police indicated her children had taken a substance "meant to harm them." Court records say Roever gave the children non-prescribed medication.

The children, girl and boy twins born in 2010 and a son born in 2012, remained hospitalized Tuesday in stable condition. Roever was released from the hospital and booked into the Johnson County jail on Tuesday.

Roever is being held on $1 million bond.
