Pennsylvania authorities have arrested a 14-year-old girl who had “hysterically” called 911 to report stabbing her older sister late Monday.
The parents of Claire Elaina Miller and Helen Miller were asleep at the time of the tragedy, according to the Manheim Township Police Department.
Claire repeatedly told the dispatcher that she stabbed her sister and was found standing outside the home, near “what appeared to be blood on the snow near the driveway.”
“Miller appeared to be attempting to wash her hands in the snow,” the police affidavit said. She also had blood on her pants.
The ninth-grader led police to her 19-year-old sister’s room where they find her under a “pillow with blood stains” and “a large knife in her neck just above her chest.”
“Helen was lying on her back with her hands up near her head.” A “large amount of blood” covered her chest and bed. She was pronounced dead at 4:13 a.m.
It remains unclear what prompted the younger sister to kill Helen who had cerebral palsy and was bound to a wheelchair.
“When I heard about this I was almost instantly upset about it myself over the details that had been related to me,” Manheim Township Police Chief Tom Rudzinski said.
“I don’t know that I have ever been a part of something that is quite as sad as this.”
