(CNN) -- Two teenagers -- 13 and 14 years old—are in custody in Spokane, Washington, and the mother of one of the teens is recuperating in a hospital after she was attacked by the boys following a pill-taking episode, authorities said.
The boys apparently had planned to kill the woman, who is the 13-year-old’s mother, and eat her liver, Spokane County Sheriff’s Deputy Craig Chamberlin told CNN Friday.
“The 14-year-old came up with the idea of, ‘Hey, let’s rip her open and eat her liver,’ but it never happened,” said Chamberlin. Instead, the older boy allegedly beat the woman with the handle of a sword, Chamberlin said, adding, “I think that was their original plan, to cut her open, but then they changed their minds.”
