20-year-old woman hospitalized with knife wounds now accused of killing baby stabbed to death hours after arriving to Georgia home

Police in Georgia have named a woman who was injured in a stabbing last week as the suspect in death of a 13-month-old child.

As CrimeOnline previously reported, the toddler was found with fatal stab wounds at a home in Canton, Georgia, on Tuesday. A 20-year-old woman later identified as Chloe Alexis Driver was hospitalized with stab wounds. Police said that four more people were at the home at the time of the fatal incident but it does not appear that any others were injured.

According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, law enforcement sources say Driver is a suspect in the death of the toddler girl, whose name has not been released. Police have not yet confirmed the relationship between the woman and the murdered child, but multiple reports indicate they had been traveling together. Driver reportedly lives in Knoxville, Tennessee.

“They recently spent time in Florida, Rhode Island, Tennessee and North Carolina,” Canton Police spokesperson Pacer Cordry told the newspaper. He said that Driver and the child were visiting friends at the home where the stabbing took place, and had arrived only two hours before the violent incident.

Police have not yet said whether they believe Driver’s injuries were self-inflicted, and she has not yet been charged in the child’s death.

This is a developing story. CrimeOnline will provide further updates when more information is available.
