A Rutland woman is scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday on attempted murder charges almost four months after police say she tried to kill her 3-year-old by cutting the child’s wrist.

Kristie Buzzeo, 36, was arrested Monday. Police say on April 23, a distraught Buzzeo cut her own and her child’s wrists while barricaded in the bathroom of her first-floor apartment.

When officers failed to communicate with Buzzeo, they forced their way into the room. The child was taken to Rutland Regional Medical Center for surgery on what police described as serious injuries.

Detectives from the Child First Advocacy Center assisted Rutland police with the investigation. Buzzeo is being held without bail until her arraignment Tuesday afternoon..

Anyone with information connected to the investigation should contact the Rutland City Police Department.
