I Think I Killed My Mommy



Perhaps the 29-year-old woman in this true crime should have lived on her own instead of with her mother. If she had, there’s a chance her 61-year-old mother would still be alive.

 

The daughter appeared to have mental health issues, or maybe entitlement issues.

 

Prior to the fateful event with her mother, she had a few incidents with crimes—burglary, home invasion, possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell, sale of a controlled substance and gaming violations. Nothing that would have escalated her to murder.

 

In the wee hours of the morning, the daughter called 9-1-1 to report she needed medical help for her mother. The dispatcher asked the typical questions about location for response teams and asked the caller for details about what happened. The daughter’s response to what happened was, “I think I killed my mommy.”

 

The daughter had also confessed to the dispatcher that she had smashed a glass table on her mother’s head and then used glass shards to slit her throat.

 

When the authorities arrived at the home, they found the deceased mother and a crime scene that looked like an altercation had transpired. The daughter had fled. Authorities in another state apprehended her about 2-1/2 hours away from her mother’s home—they reported she was still covered in blood.

 

A neighbor said the police were often called to the mother’s home to resolve domestic disputes between mother and daughter.

 

KLAS-TV reported the mother and daughter were fighting about cigarettes when the fight turned into murder. Her initial plea to a second-degree murder charge was guilty but mentally ill.

 

She sat in jail awaiting her sentencing for over one year. A judge sentenced her to 15-years-to-life. The judge also ordered her to receive medical care for mental illness.

 

If you or someone you know is suffering with mental illness, is struggling emotionally, or has concerns about their mental health, there are ways to get help. Start here: National Institute of Mental Health
