NORTHWEST MIAMI-DADE, FLA. (WSVN) - A mother is suspected of killing her 15-month-old and stabbing her husband and stepdaughter at their Northwest Miami-Dade home.

Miami-Dade Police and Fire Rescue units responded to the scene of a reported aggravated battery along Northwest 99th Street and 30th Avenue, just after 8:45 p.m., Monday.

There, they found a man who told them his wife stabbed him.

Surveillance video from across the street captured a man crouched down with what appears to be his head wrapped in a bandage. 

“All other units stage one block away until PD clears the scene,” said a dispatcher.

Miami-Dade Police detectives said the suspect’s 16-year-old daughter had also been attacked.

“She’s a loving mother. I see her with the kids all the time,” said neighbor Ronnie Williams. “They play up and down the street all the time.”

Detectives said sadly, they found a 15-month-old girl in the Northwest Miami-Dade home who wasn’t responding. She died at the hospital.

Seven hours earlier, neighbors said the suspect is that mother, holding her 15-month old in her arms.

“She was not herself when I saw her,” said neighbor Thelma Sloan.

The neighbor said they had a strange conversation about the COVID-19 vaccine, and that’s when she knew something wasn’t right.

“The way she was talking to me and what she said to me about nobody should take a shot because God had revealed to her that anybody who took a shot was going to hell, and if you had taken one, you had to pray real hard that God would forgive you,” she said.

According to detectives, the mom then hurt herself. She is at the hospital recovering.

Neighbors are shocked this happened.

“I don’t know what happened with her, but I assume that she lost it,” Williams said. “It was really sad.”

The suspect, her husband and her teenage daughter all remain in the hospital, and police have not released their names.
