A Florida woman has been charged with murder after driving her dead daughter to a Orlando hospital before she allegedly pulled a knife on medical staff there.
The Orlando Sentinel reports that Rosa Alcides Rivera, 28, drove to the Winnie Palmer Hospital on Sunday with her 11-year-old daughter in the car. When hospital staff attempted to help the girl, Aleyda Rivera, they discovered that she was dead — and had multiple knife injuries on her body.
An Orlando police spokesperson told the newspaper that the suspect then “became combative and produced a knife.” She was arrested at the scene and is now facing first-degree murder charges.
