|The murdered child|
A 13-year-old girl killed her 2-year-old sister by stabbing her, according to police reports.
Police in DeKalb County, Georgia, have charged the 13-year-old in the stabbing death of her 2-year-old sister.
She was stabbed several times and her body was found by her father behind the family house on Monday, DeKalb County police spokeswoman Mekka Parish said Tuesday.
Police are withholding the name of the 13-year-old girl, who was taken into custody. A hearing was set for Tuesday afternoon. The murderer has been identified as Tyasia Jackson.
"She has gone to glory now," the girl’s father, Ray Shelton, said. "Now it's up to me to get where she is," he said. "As I tell all my children, they have to enter heaven. I have to go to heaven."
The child had multiple stab wounds, police said. Brothers of the girl, all under the age of 5, were home at the time of the incident, authorities said.
Parish says the child was attacked inside the house and investigators do not believe the other children witnessed the murder.
