Red Bluff Mother Arrested on Suspicion of Attempted Murder

RED BLUFF, Calif. (AP) – A Red Bluff woman is in custody for allegedly giving her 13-year-old son an overdose of pills and slashing his throat with a knife. The Record Searchlight of Redding reports that 40-year old Theresa Marie Garcia-Lewis was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of attempted murder and felony child abuse. Red Bluff police found the boy after they received a call reporting that he had a cut on his neck and had possibly overdosed on an unknown medication. He was flown to a Chico hospital where his condition was not known, the Record Searchlight said. Investigators think Garcia-Lewis gave her son a potentially-lethal amount of pills on Monday and then again on Tuesday before his neck was slashed. She is being held at the Tehama County jail on $550,000 bail, but has not yet obtained a lawyer, a jail official said.
