A 14-year-old Michigan girl who allegedly stabbed her grandmother to death in her bedroom won't be charged as an adult.
Police say Cynthia Mosby, a 65-year-old nurse, was stabbed multiple times on Sunday, Feb. 21, and left for her son to find the following day.
Mosby's son called 911 after he found his mother lying face down on the bedroom floor of her home in Canton Township. The suspect wasn't at home when police arrived. Mosby was the girl's sole guardian, authorities said.
The suspect's father, who lived in the home with his mother and daughter, said the girl probably snapped because Mosby pushed her to focus on her studies.
After the murder, the teen fled about 25 miles away to a motel in Southgate, where she checked in using her late grandmother's credit card.
Police located the girl at the motel with a young man on Monday, Feb. 22, the day after the murder.
The male was not charged. Police believe the murder was premeditated.
The teen was arraigned Saturday morning on both first and second-degree murder, 10 News reported.
The girl is being charged as "adult designated," although she is not being charged as an adult.
"In this case, the 14-year-old girl is being adult designated because upon conviction it gives the judge the most flexibility during sentencing to provide options for rehabilitation of this very troubled youth," said Wayne County prosecutor Kym Worthy in a statement.
According to reports, the teen was ordered to undergo a mental health evaluation. She is scheduled for a competency hearing on April 15.
