Ocala news, Florida news.

According to police, a 9-year-old Florida boy who has stabbed his younger sister while screaming ‘die, die!’ last month was charged with attempted murder.

On Tuesday, the boy whose identity was not publicly revealed due to his age was charged with attempted first-degree murder.

The tragedy occurred in the family apartment in Florida when the siblings’ mother left them alone and went to check the mail and get some items from her neighbor. After almost 10 minutes, she returned home and found her 5-year-old daughter who has suffered several stab wounds lying on the ground while her brother held a kitchen knife and yelled “die, die,” the arrest affidavit confirmed.

He told police that he wanted his sister to die and planned for that two days earlier.
