The internet is in an outrage after news spread that a Washington mom has been charged with injecting her three children with heroin.

Child Protection Officers were first alerted a year ago by friends of the woman.

The kids were removed last year from the Spanaway, WA home as an investigation started.

The oldest child, 6, said that the mother and her boyfriend would "mix white powder with water" and inject them with it. The boy said that sometimes this was done after the boyfriend would choke them.

The 25  year-old woman and her 26 year-old boyfriend have been charged with three counts of unlawful delivery of a controlled substance to a minor, second-degree criminal mistreatment and second-degree child assault.
