Laquita Lewis, a mother from Harris County, Texas is charged with stabbing her 4-year-old daughter, Fredricka Allen, to death.
“Deputies say 34-year-old Laquita Lewis was in a traffic accident Sunday evening on I-10 East at 610 North. While she was being transported to the hospital, she texted family members that she had done ‘something bad’ to her daughter,” ABC 7 reported.
Family members called 911, and deputies found the little girl dead inside her home just before 9 p.m. Prosecutors say Lewis allegedly stabbed her child multiple times in the chest, and left her on the floor of the master bedroom.
According to deputies, Lewis had an argument with her boyfriend earlier that day. Whether the incidents are related is being investigated..
KHOU reported that the scene was so bad, chaplains were sent out to console the family members of the little girl, as well as the deputies who discovered her body. “There’s not enough words to describe the horrible death of this child,” said Thomas Gilliland, spokesman for the Harris County Sheriff’s Office.
