Texas Girl Stabs Mother 9 Times
An 11-year-old Texas girl was arrested over the weekend for stabbing her own mother nine times in the head, neck and shoulder as the woman slept.
While the unnamed minor is currently in a juvenile center, 41-year-old Toshia Edmonson, a single mother of two, is in a serious but stable condition in a Dallas hospital.
The girl told police she that she attacked her mother as she was ‘so, so angry and frustrated with her.’ Officers say she was upset that she had to be home at 11.45pm on Friday.
According to a police report, the girl said that Edmonson pushed her into a sofa and told her that she was going to ‘give her away.’
The girl then waited for her mother to go to sleep, got a knife from the kitchen, went to her bedroom and stabbed her nine times, as reported by CBS 11.
The report stated that Edmonson’s other child, a younger boy, told police that his mother woke up screaming and shouting her daughter’s name.
Edmonson was eventually able to get the knife out of the 11-year-old’s hand and fall on top of her to stop the attack, according to reports…
…The girl has been charged with family violence aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
If this little girl didn’t want to end up living with a bunch of strangers then she has clearly gone about preventing that the wrong way.
