Claudena Helton appeared by video in Dayton Municipal Court Monday where she pleaded not guilty to charges of attempted murder and felonious assault.

Two children who police say were shot by their mother in OH last week have died.

Khmorra Helton, 8, and Kaiden Helton, 6, died Sunday at Dayton Children's Hospital from gunshot wounds to the head. We have contacted Dayton Police Department officials to find out whether the charges will be increased now that the children have died.

Police say Helton shot the children Thursday morning at her home on Lori Sue Avenue in Dayton.

Helton has been charged with child endangerment in the past.

In March 2014, she was convicted of disorderly conduct inside Juvenile Court.

At the time of the shootings, an investigation was open and active against Helton by Montgomery County Children Services.

"From what I've seen and noticed, she and the kids got along fine", Sanders said.

Police have uncovered a bad story of abuse after a 5-year-old boy showed up at the hospital drunk.

Police say there are indications the mother has mental health issues but it hasn't been determined why the children were shot.
