A New Jersey mother was arrested for the fatal stabbing of her 5-month-old daughter, prosecutors said.
Kristhie Alcazar, 26, was charged with murder in the horrific killing of the child at a home in Penns Grove on Friday night, according to the Salem County Prosecutor’s Office.
Police responded to the home after an emergency dispatcher heard an “audible disturbance” in the background of a 911 call made from the scene.
When investigators arrived at the residence, they found Alcazar feuding with another person. They also discovered the dead infant, prosecutors said.
The child had visible stab wounds to her chest, authorities said.
Multiple knives were recovered at the scene, prosecutors said
The baby’s father was not home at the time of the homicide.
