COLUMBIA, S.C.(WBNS10) — A mother drowned 1 of her daughters in their South Carolina home & was trying to kill another child when the oldest daughter was awakened by screams & managed to save her sister.

Jamie Bradley Brun, 37, was charged with murder & attempted murder after the attack.

Brun has talked to investigators & Tanner called it a horrific crime but told reporters he wouldn't say why Brun wanted to kill her children.

Brun's 16-year-old daughter was asleep around 1:30 a.m. Friday when her 8-year-old sister's screams woke her up. 

The teen went into the bathroom & managed to wrest her sister away from her mother & run to a nearby family member's house to call 911.

Deputies arrived eight minutes later & found Brun & her 6-year-old daughter, who was later pronounced dead at the hospital.

Brun tried to grab a deputy's gun as she was arrested & officers shocked her with a Taser to take her into custody.

Brun was being held without bond.

The 8-year-old did not appear to be seriously injured. She & her teen sister are being cared for by other family members.

Brun had no arrest record in South Carolina & authorities had been called to the house only once about 2 years ago after a school employee was concerned about the mental health of 1 of the children.
