This is crazy.
Why try to kill a person in their sleep? So cowardly.
According to Mail Online
Two teenagers, ages 13 and 14, from Washington state have been arrested in a bizarre sword attack on the mother of one of the boys that included a discussion of killing the woman and cannibalizing her liver.
Spokane Valley deputies responding to an assault call early Tuesday found the bloody woman on her bed; next to her were two knives and a sword with a handle bent at 45-degree angle.
The unnamed victim was hospitalized Wednesday in stable condition, Deputy Craig Chamberlin said.
‘It doesn’t sound like she remembered the attack,’ Chamberlin said in a phone interview. The woman told deputies the sword handle wasn’t previously bent. It wasn’t clear who called for help.
SMH. Poor woman.
Deputies tracked the teens through a crime spree that included breaking into a home and crashing the SUV into the side of a mobile home. A K-9 dog eventually located them.
The injured woman’s 13-year-old son told deputies that his friend tried to kill the sleeping mother with a sword, Chamberlin said. The younger boy said he talked his friend into trying to kill his mother because he had taken ‘blue pills.’ The spokesman said it was unclear what the pills were.
The boy said he would never have done anything like that sober, Chamberlin said.
The son also told deputies his friend tried to talk him into eating his mother’s liver, the sheriff’s spokesman said.
‘Your guess is as good as mine’ as to where that idea came from, Chamberlin said.
The older boy admitted attempting to kill his friend’s mother and said they were going to leave town later, the spokesman said. The older boy then asked for a lawyer.
Officers searching for the fugitives received a report of a hit-and-run crash at 7800 East Alki Avenue, where the stolen Dodge struck a mobile home and was left running while the teens took off, The Spokesman-Review reported.
A short time later, the boys were spotted breaking into a home in the area of East Boone Avenue.
The interior of the targeted house was severely vandalized. Police say the runaway teens caused about $2,000 worth of damage by hurling a hammer at the walls and windows.
The pair were eventually discovered hiding near the residence and taken into custody.
Both boys were booked into juvenile detention for investigation of second-degree assault, taking a motor vehicle without permission, burglary, malicious mischief and hit and run.
Public defenders have been pointed for both teens, who were ordered held without bail at an initial court appearance Tuesday, Chamberlin said.
Good defense. The blue pills made him do it…FOH.
