Mom accused of stabbing young daughters, driving off bridge with them

A Colorado woman is behind bars for allegedly trying to murder her two young children — with cops claiming that she stabbed the pair and then drove off a bridge with them and into a river.

Christina Martinez, 33, was arrested Tuesday following a weeks-long investigation by the Otero County Sheriff’s Office.

Cops say she attacked her daughters, ages 8 and 10, at their home in Manzanola on March 31 and then drove them to the Arkansas River Bridge in her SUV. With them both suffering from stab wounds, Martinez allegedly launched the vehicle off the side of the bridge and into the water below. Everyone survived.
