    A New Hampshire woman who pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity to forcing her two children to drink bleach will spend at least five years in a state psychiatric hospital.

    Wendy Miller-Wright, of Seabrook, was charged last year with attempted murder. She admitted in court that she made the children drink the chemical on June 18, 2013 at their home in Seabrook by telling them it was medicine. She was sentenced Friday.

    Police say her 6-year-old son and 7-year-old daughter spit out most of the bleach and went to a neighbor for help. Miller-Wright also drank bleach. Police say she was trying to kill herself and her children.

    The children are living with their father.

    Miller-Wright has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder.
