A teen girl in Nebraska has been charged with murder after allegedly stabbing her newborn baby to death.
According to multiple news reports 16-year-old Nebraska girl is charged with first-degree murder and use of a deadly weapon to commit a felony after allegedly stabbing her newborn to death.
On November 6, police were called to a home in Gordon, Nebraska after getting a report that a newborn baby was not breathing. The police report indicates the officer met the girl’s father at the door and was told “it’s too late.”
The officer found a teen girl squatting inside a bedroom and the girls’ mother was holding a newborn baby wrapped in a towel. The girl’s mother was crying hysterically crying and told the officer “she hurt him,” and said “you can see the marks.”
The officer observed that the baby’s throat had been slit or cut and the child had multiple stab wounds in his chest. The girls’ parents said they saw their daughter with a knife but the knife was missing at the time the baby was discovered.
