Police: Sister Stabbed Sibling 40 Times, Killing Her

CNN-- Police in Chicago say a 14-year-old girl stabbed her 11-year-old sister 40 times in an upstairs bedroom of their home on Tuesday, killing the younger sibling. The 14-year-old called 9-1-1, originally saying an intruder was to blame but later admitted committing the act because her younger sister wasn't grateful for all the things she did for her.


The teen said she would cook dinner and perform chores for her sibling. During a detention hearing, prosecutors say the teen thought about it for 10-15 minutes then went downstairs and grabbed a knife. After the viscious attack, she took a shower to wash off the blood. 


The teen has been charged with murder in juvenile court, but the case could be moved to an adult court according to the Lake County State Attorney's Office.
