ITV reports a Washington State mother is on trial in Pierce County for injecting her three young children with heroin to make them go to sleep, a court heart Tuesday.

Ashlee Hutt is accused of giving her three children – aged two, four and six – heroin, a class A drug, the report said.

The children told police their parents would give them “feel-good medicine” or “sleeping juice,” the report said.

Hutt and the children’s father, Leroy McIver, were found living with the children in a house filled with drug needles and rat droppings in Pierce County, Wash., the report said.

Tests showed what appeared to be low levels of what is believed to be heroin in two of the children, who have since been placed in foster care, the report said.

Hutt appears separately in court after reportedly spending months hiding from police, the report said.
