A neighbor said that Lillie Stanton was crazy about her daughter and granddaughter.
Yet, on Sunday, the 48-year-old grandmother went on a brutal and horrific stabbing spree, in which she allegedly murdered her daughter, Danel “Korrey” Stanton, 23, and her 22-month-old granddaughter, Kaydence Ray Meirs, in the neck before stabbing herself.
Winchester, Kentucky, police Capt. James Hall said he would not release a motive for the killings, although he said Lillie had confessed and revealed her intent to the police, reports the Daily Mail.
According to Kentucky.com, Hall said that police could not elaborate “at this time.”
Police say that Lillie’s ex-husband, Korrey’s father, Robert Stanton, had returned to the home and discovered the bodies. His ex-wife told him what had happened and he called 911. Police were reportedly on the scene minutes later.
WKYT 27 News First reports that the Clark County coroner said today that Kaydence’s official cause of death was “cutting to the neck” and although initial reports have said Korrey’s was from stab wounds, her official cause of death has not yet been released.
Lillie Stanton, who is currently in the hospital and listed in serious condition from her self inflicted injuries, is under 24-hour guard by Winchester Police. She has been charged with two c0unts of murder.
WKYT TV reports that investigators say the family has no history of violence or police calls to their home.
