The 39-year-old mother who threw her two young children out a fourth-story window before jumping in a suicide attempt has been charged with attempted murder, child abuse and neglect on Monday.

"You are going to heaven," the mother was described by the indictment in Tel Aviv District Court as saying before throwing her children out the window.According to the indictment, the mother went on a week-long alcohol binge, neglecting her children completely, before the murder-suicide attempt.

During the week-long binge, the mother's friend testified that she took in the children for several days after visiting her friend and finding her drunk and her children making a complete mess of the apartment. The woman then cleaned up the apartment, poured out any remaining alcohol in the apartment and took her friend's children into her care, but the mother came to her apartment to return her kids home after two days. Then, the mother continued to drink and neglect their needs for the remainder of the week until the day she jumped from the apartment with her children.
