Mother charged with murder, attempted murder after girls stabbed in Montreal on Saturday

The mother of two girls whom police found stabbed on Saturday night in Montreal has been charged with the murder of her 11-year-old daughter and the attempted murder of her five-year-old.

The hearing took place without the suspect at the Montreal courthouse before Quebec Court Judge Geneviève Gratton.

A publication ban is preventing media from naming the accused to protect the identity of both young victims.

A 911 call was made around 6:05 p.m. Saturday regarding the incident that took place in Montreal’s Villeray neighbourhood.

Officers found both girls and they were quickly taken to hospital by ambulance, both in critical condition. Police say the eldest later died of her injuries and the five-year-old is in stable condition.
