Aunt held without bond in kids' stabbings

November 13, 2009 11:54:12 AM PST
A woman accused of stabbing her nine-year-old niece and ten-year-old nephew is now being held without bond. Regina Ugamat was in court for an appearance this morning. She's charged with felony injury to a child.

Investigators say she stabbed the kids repeatedly at a home in northeast Harris County earlier this week. Prosecutors say Ugamat is a flight risk since she's from Guam.

The boy was stabbed 18 times and the girl was stabbed three times. Both children remain hospitalized in critical condition.
