Swilling reportedly told police she wanted to kill her daughter and had schizophrenia and depression, according to the Odessa newspaper.
Swilling was arrested on a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. CBS 7 reported that an Odessa police official said they chose to charge her with that because it is a first-degree felony as opposed to attempted murder, a second-degree felony.
