A mother has been charged with capital murder in the stabbing death of her 4-year-old daughter in west Harris County.
In court Monday morning, our sister station ABC13 learned that Fredricka was stabbed in the chest multiple times. Gilliand said the mother texted family members saying she might have harmed the child. I don't harbor any hate in my heart for her.
This is not Lewis' first run-in with Harris County law enforcement. She allegedly told family she'd done something bad, and she was sorry. When deputies arrived, they found Fredricka Allen dead at the apartment around 9 p.m. Authorities believe the girl was stabbed to death earlier in the day, reports CBS affiliate KHOU.
HCSO chaplains were asked to help family members and deputies at the scene.
Lewis was in the hospital when authorities made the gruesome discovery, after getting into an accident at about 6 p.m. near I-10 and Loop 610.
Earlier Sunday, Lewis started contacting relatives, telling them in text messages that she had hurt her daughter.
The horrific scene traumatized deputies at the scene as well as family members. The little girl's grandmother, Willia Allen, said her son first called her Sunday.
"There's not enough words to describe the terrible death of this child", Gilliland told KHOU.
The DA's office says that as part of her probation requirements, she was required to take a Texas Risk Assessment System evaluation, which ranked her with a score of zero (the lowest score) for her risk for recidivism.
