TEEN STABS HALF SISTER 40 TIMES BECAUSE SHE FELT UNDERAPPRECIATED


A 14-year-old girl fatally stabbed her 11-year-old half-sister 40 times in their family’s suburban Chicago home because she felt unappreciated, police said Wednesday.

The teen was charged with first-degree murder in juvenile court after she allegedly hacked the younger girl to death in her bed in Mundelein, about 40 miles north of Chicago, around 8:30 a.m. Tuesday.

“It’s quite a tragedy,” Mundelein Mayor Steve Lentz told the Chicago Tribune at press conference. “Please pray for us, first all for the family. . .There’s a lot of grief going on right now.”

The alleged killer woke up Tuesday, went downstairs to get a knife and returned to her half-sister’s room, where she repeatedly slashed the girl because “she didn’t appreciate the things she had been doing around the house,” WMAQ-TV reported.

The teen allegedly told police after the gruesome murder that she had cooked dinner and performed other chores for the victim, who recently hit the older girl, CNN reported.

The younger sister was found with 30 stab wounds on her neck, arms and chest, with additional cuts on her face, the Tribune reported. The girl had defensive wounds on her hands and bruises on her chest.

A police officer is seen outside a home in Mundelein, Ill., Wednesday, Jan. 22, 2014, where an 11-year-old girl was stabbed to death allegedly by her 14-year-old half-sister.

After the shocking crime, cops say the teen called 911 to report that a Hispanic man had entered the home and stabbed her sister, according to WMAQ.

The girl later told detectives the same story, but finally relented and admitted to the sickening crime after cops told her they had hair strands to connect the teen to the killing.

The girls had lived at home for about a year with their mother, but it’s unclear where the woman was during the crime.

The report of the intruder sparked a lockdown at three local schools as police responded, with guns drawn, to the home.

Cops had been to the home, on a quiet cul-de-sac, in the past but for “nothing that pertains to an incident like this,” Guenther told the Tribune.
