Mother accused of cutting 3-year-old’s wrist

August 6, 2019

RUTLAND, Vt. (AP) — A Vermont woman has been arrested on an attempted murder charge, accused of cutting the wrist of her 3-year-old child.

Police say in April, Kristie Buzzeo, of Rutland, had taken a knife from a neighbor’s apartment and barricaded herself and child in the bathroom. Police say when they arrived, they forced the door open and found that Buzzeo had cut her wrist and the wrist of her child.

Authorities say the child suffered serious physical injuries and was taken the hospital for surgery.

Buzzeo was arrested Monday and was being held without bail. She’s expected to be arraigned Tuesday on charges of attempted murder, aggravated domestic assault and cruelty to a child.

It was not immediately known if she is being represented by an attorney.
