LOGAN — A Millville woman accused of trying to help another woman kill herself has been charged with several felonies.
Teresa Renae Clark, 36, was charged with three counts of attempted aggravated murder, a first-degree felony, and two counts of aggravated cruelty to an animal, a class A misdemeanor, according to amended charges filed in 1st District Court Wednesday.
Prosecutors allege Clark provided materials to aid in a 55-year-old woman’s attempt to kill herself on June 25. Two dogs were also found dead in a hotel room where the woman was found unresponsive.
Emergency crews were able to resuscitate the woman, who then told police who had provided the materials for her suicide attempt. Police did not specify what the relationship was between Clark and the woman.
Clark was arrested on July 7 after Logan Police Capt. Tyson Budge said police recorded a call in which Clark told the woman she could provide more materials for another suicide attempt.
Clark made her initial court appearance on Monday, according to court documents.
