A woman in a Seattle suburb charged with injecting her three children with heroin.

FOX's Gary Baumgarten reports:

Ashlee Rose Hutt is charged with three counts of delivery of a controled substance to a minor. Her children, just 6, 4 and 2.

Police were tipped to the situation by child protective services which reported the Spanaway, Washington, house was jammed with people and that they appeared to be using heroin.

When cops found injection marks on one of the children, they investigated further. They say the six-year-old boy told them his mom gave them "feel good medicine" to put them to sleep. This has apparently happened before.

Cops say just back in September, the father was charged with the same crimes. The children have been removed from the home.
