Beaten Woman Tries to Kill Self, Child

A Tampa woman tried to kill herself and her 12-year-old daughter by setting fire to her car in their garage after being beaten by her ex-husband, the Tampa Tribune reports. Neighbors rescued them.

The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office says the mother and daughter described the episode as a suicide pact. Both were sent to hospitals for psychiatric examination.
