The Evansville woman who says she was attacked and threatened because she's a witness in a murder trial says CPS took away her children and she doesn't know why. 

Angie Mueller says her two boys were taken while she was in court on Tuesday for the start of the trial.

Police have arrested 24-year-old Quinton Jennings in the threatening case. He's accused of pointing a knife at the woman's chest. Officers say the victim didn't know Jennings, but he was identified by several people who stopped the attack Monday night.

Mueller tells 14 News she's a good mother who loves her children and wants to know why they were taken away by Child Protective Services.

"Man knocked on my door said he was EPD and attacked me in my own home. He wasn't EPD. He's in jail and I pressed charges. So, I don't know if they're trying to say my kids ain't safe or what's going on," Mueller says.

We haven't been able to contact CPS for a comment.

Mueller is testifying for the prosecution in the trial of Chris Bell who's accused in the death of Cedric Watt. The trial is expected to last a few more days.
