OCALA, FL (WESH) — A 9-year-old Ocala boy was taken into custody after he stabbed his 5-year-old sister with a knife because he said he wanted her die, police said.
Investigators said the little girl has multiple stab wounds and was airlifted to a nearby hospital.
Police said that when asked why he did it, the boy told detectives that the thought of killing her came to his mind two days ago.
According to an arrest affidavit, the boy got a knife from the kitchen and told detectives that during the attack, he was shouting “die, die” before his mother returned and grabbed the knife.
The Arizona mother accused of killing her three young children sang to them as she killed them, with her oldest child fighting her to save his little sister, say police.
Rachel Henry, 22, of Phoenix, was arrested and charged with three counts of first-degree murder after allegedly killing her children, aged 3 years; almost 2 years; and 7 months, on Monday night, the City of Phoenix Police Department says in a statement.
Henry allegedly confessed to killing son Zane Henry, 3, and daughters Miraya Henry, almost 2, and Catalaya Rios, 7 months, say police.
While “wrestling on top of her,” AZ Family reports, “Rachel felt the one-year-old female’s breathing was obstructed but continued to impede her breath by placing her hand over the 1-year-old female’s mouth.”
The child struggled and began kicking her, prompting 3-year-old Zane to yell at her “in an attempt to get her to stop,” the report says.
He then began “punching her to no avail,” it says.
She knew the child was dead “when she stopped kicking,” it says.
Zane was next. After a relative came over and “interrupted her” by playing with him, she took him into another room.
After placing him on the floor, she “straddled him with one of her legs and placed her hand over his nose and mouth.”
While Henry allegedly held the boy down, she began “singing to the 3-year-old male as he was scratching her chest and pinching her while she placed her hand over his nose and mouth “to smother him until he died,” the report says.

DAYTON — The mother of a 10-year-old Dayton boy who died after what police described as extreme child abuse says she tried to warn authorities that her son was in danger and now wishes she just would have gone ahead and kidnapped him.
Robin Collins, the mother of Takoda Collins, told this news organization that she called the police and filed documents with a Wisconsin court, begging them to get Takoda out of the home where authorities have since said the boy was locked naked in an attic, emotionally and physically abused, raped and eventually either held underwater or forced to drink a lot of water before he died Dec. 13.
The boy’s father, Al-Mutahan McLean, faces four counts endangering children, two counts felonious assault, and one count rape of a child younger than 13, after indictments in Montgomery County Common Pleas Court.

DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. — A Christmas gift landed a 7-year-old boy in the hospital and his mother wants to warn other parents about it.
Kiara Stroud said her son accidentally swallowed one of his AirPods and she had to rush him to the emergency room.
The AirPod is still in the boy’s stomach.
“He was like, ‘Mom. I don’t want my phone,’ because he got a phone for Christmas as well, and he’s like, ‘I don’t want to be near my phone. I don’t want it to connect to my phone and start playing music.’ I’m like, ‘Oh my God.’ He’s a crazy kid,” Stroud said.
