A Kansas woman who tried to poison her three children with medication after losing custody of them to her ex-husband has been sentenced to nearly 29 years in prison. 

Therese Irine Roever, 39, was sentenced Tuesday on three attempted first-degree murder charges and criminal threat. 

Prosecutors said Roever's ex-husband called police in February 2018 to report Roever and their three children were drugged and groggy at her home.  Roever lost custody of her children when the couple divorced but was later given unsupervised visitation. 

Two of the children were 7 and one was 5 at the time of the incident.
