Stabbing Death Of Child
An autopsy report says an 8-year-old Detroit girl who authorities say was killed by her mother was stabbed in the heart and had a bite mark on her body.
A court document says the younger brother of an 8-year-old girl who told children’s advocacy workers that he watched his mother stab his sister to death in their Detroit home continues to re-enact the slaying.
A court official who was asked to remove a Detroit child from her home just weeks before she was fatally stabbed turned down the state’s request because he believed there was no immediate danger, according to a transcript released Friday.
A Detroit mom accused in the stabbing death of her 8-year-old daughter appeared in court today to face formal charges.
Police were called to a home on Larned Street in Detroit about 3 a.m. Sunday morning and found the child dead at the scene.
