PITT COUNTY -

A Pitt County woman accused of trying to murder her husband will appear in court Monday.

Sarah Saunders, 27, tried to kill her husband not once, but twice, all within a 24-hour span, authorities said. Saunders stabbed her husband in the head with a knife in May, deputies said. She later confessed that she tried to poison him a day before the stabbing.

Sarah Saunders was charged with two counts of attempted first-degree murder.
