9-year-old boy suspected in fatal stabbing of toddler in Texas home

A 2-year-old girl left with a dozen other children in a home without adult supervision was stabbed to death, and police suspect a 9-year-old boy was responsible.

No charges have been filed so far in the death of Damya Jefferson and police were still trying to piece together what happened when the girl was stabbed Friday night, said Senior Cpl. Janice Crowther of the Dallas Police Department on Sunday.

Damya's 17-year-old mother, Tiara Jefferson, had asked a friend's mother to care for her 2-month-old daughter and the toddler.

The caretaker, Detress Richmond, then left 11 of her own children along with Jefferson's children with a 15-year-old baby sitter, police said, though they did not say where Richmond had gone. Jefferson said she believes Richmond left to play bingo.

The children were upstairs unsupervised when Damya was stabbed twice in the chest, Crowther said. The sitter called an emergency operator to report the stabbing around 10 p.m., and Damya died by the time she reached the hospital, Crowther said.

There is no telephone listing for Richmond and The Associated Press was unable to contact her for comment Sunday.
