DETROIT — A 31-year-old woman has been charged in the stabbing death of her 1-year-old son in a southwest Detroit apartment.
The Wayne County prosecutor’s office says Shaquittea Denice Reese-Bethea could be arraigned Friday from a hospital bed on first-degree murder, felony murder, torture, and child abuse charges.
Police were sent to the apartment late Tuesday night after authorities received a 911 call from the woman. Dispatchers were told by the caller that people were dead and that the woman was going to kill herself.
Police found Reese-Bethea bleeding in a hallway before locating the body of the child who was stabbed multiple times.
Reese-Bethea was taken to a hospital for treatment of her wounds.
