CLINTON TOWNSHIP (AP) — Authorities say a 17-year-old girl has been arrested in connection with the fatal stabbing of her disabled mother in a suburban Detroit apartment.

Clinton Township police say the teen was apprehended early Monday but hasn’t been charged in the death of the 45-year-old woman, whose body was discovered Sunday night. An autopsy is planned for Tuesday to determine the cause of her death.

Investigators say the woman, who uses a wheelchair, hadn’t been seen since noon Sunday. Police say the daughter once stabbed her brother, though his injuries weren’t life-threatening.
