According to WSB, April Short eventually left the bedroom with her 11-year-old and 6-year-old, and she walked out of the home with them.

April Short allegedly tried to drive away with the two other children, but officers stopper her and took her into custody.
According to WSB, Short confessed to injuring the 11-month-old child. The two other children reportedly told police their mother said she stabbed the victim so the child could "be with Jesus and God."
