According to the police officials, the suspect, later identified as 22-year-old Kaneiah, was taken into custody and later charged with murder after she reportedly stabbed her much younger sister several times before she dragged her body outside. Prosecutors said that the 22-year-old woman already had two incidents involving deadly weapon last year.
Last week, deputies responded to the victim’s home after mom reported her 10-year-old daughter missing. The responding deputies quickly located the missing 10-year-old girl, Mashiyah, who suffered multiple stab wounds and was pronounced dead at the scene. According to the Sheriff’s Office, the little girl was stabbed inside her home and then moved in the backyard.
The victim’s 22-year-old sister was taken into custody and the motive for alleged attack is unclear at this time. Per reports, the 22-year-old suspect was out on bond when the fatal incident occurred. Last year, she was arrested two times. In April 2023, the then 21-year-old woman was arrested after she grabbed a box cutter and cut her boyfriend during an argument.
When her boyfriend exited the car, she stole his vehicle. She was taken into custody shortly after. The box cutter and the stollen vehicle were found in her possession. In August 2023, Kaneiah was taken into custody for assaulting a police officer. She was later charged with assault with a deadly weapon against a law enforcement official, simple assault and resisting an officer.
