A 13-year-old girl was arrested by Texas police after she allegedly stabbed her mother more than two dozen times at their San Antonio home.
Bexar County sheriff’s deputies were called to the home on the 11000 block of Talon Run on the Northwest Side at about 6 p.m. on Thursday. When they arrived, they found the girl’s 33-year-old mother with numerous stab wounds.
The woman was transported to a hospital where she remains in critical condition after being rushed into surgery, according to police.
The girl was detained by police at that time.
The girl appeared in juvenile court in pigtails on Tuesday. WOAI-TV reported that the girl’s father appeared in court to offer support for his daughter.
Investigators said police also found bloody brass knuckles and a dumbbell they say were used in the brutal attack.
A judge found that there was enough probable cause to keep the girl in custody. Her next hearing will be January 17.
Additionally, on the night of the stabbing, a deputy was driving to the scene when they were involved in a multi-vehicle crash. The officer was uninjured, but three people were hospitalized, including the driver of another vehicle, a one-year-old child, and a 42-year-old adult.
A similar incident unfolded in October when Florida police were called to the scene of a stabbing and found a 39-year-old mother dead. They later released a recording of the 911 call made by her 13-year-old son, who allegedly admitted to stabbing his mother and sending photos of her body to a friend he knew online.
“I don’t know his real name because he’s an online friend who I play with a lot,” the boy reportedly said on the audio recording.
The boy was charged with second-degree murder.
