A Saskatoon woman charged with the attempted murder of her six-year-old-son will have to wait until tomorrow to learn if she will be released on bail.

On Monday, a judge reserved his decision in the case of the 32-year-old-woman charged with attempted murder and aggravated assault.

The woman kept her eyes down for most of the proceedings, staying quiet as family and supporters listened to proceedings.

On March 28, police were called to a home in the city's Nutana neighbourhood for a child custody dispute.

When officers came in, they were led to a bathroom in the home by the woman's ten-year-old son.

Police said the woman, and her six-year-old son, were stabbed in the abdomen. The child had received a cut to the neck while the woman had cuts to her wrists. Both were rushed to hospital.

There had been previous family law proceedings between the woman and her partner and police indicated that this incident started when the boys' father attempted to pick up his sons.

The judge will release his decision Tuesday afternoon.
