FARMINGTON -- A possible plea deal has been continued for two more weeks for a North Logan woman accused of trying to kill her two young daughters in South Weber.

Reggie Ann Peck, 36, has been charged with two counts of inflicting serious harm on a child intentionally and two counts of administering a substance surreptitiously, all second- degree felonies.

She is being held in Davis County Jail on no bail.

A court hearing was set for Wednesday, but has been continued until June 15. If the case has not been resolved by then, it will be set for trial, said Deputy Davis County Attorney Richard Larsen.

On Aug. 30, police found Peck and her two children inside her locked Dodge Durango in South Weber after residents reported a suspicious vehicle parked next to the canal.

Davis County officers had been looking for Peck since Aug. 29, after she failed to return the girls to their father in Bountiful.

According to the probable cause statement, Peck had "administered prescription controlled substances to her two children in an effort to sedate them to a level of unconsciousness."

Peck had tried to kill her children Oct. 18, 2009, officials said. Peck entered a plea in abeyance in 1st District Court's mental health court Jan. 20, 2010, to two counts of second-degree felony surreptitious administrating of a certain substance and two class B misdemeanors.

She is still on probation in that case. An order to show cause for violating her probation was filed in September 2010. The resolution to that case is pending the outcome of the 2nd District Court case, according to the court website.
