Chicago teen accused in death of girl, 11

MUNDELEIN, Ill. - A 14-year-old girl was charged Wednesday with first-degree murder in the death of an 11-year-old girl who was stabbed more than 30 times at the suburban Chicago home where they both lived.

During a court hearing Wednesday, prosecutors said the suspect told authorities the 11-year-old didn't appreciate all she had done for her, including making dinner and doing the younger girl's chores. Authorities haven't released the names of the victim or the suspect, nor have they said how the two are related.

Dr. Thomas Rudd, the county's coroner, said the victim died of "multiple sharp force injuries." He said the girl had stab wounds to her face, neck, chest and arms, and that two stab wounds penetrated her upper left lung. He also said there were indications that the younger girl fought for her life, including defensive wounds on her left hand that indicated she "probably grabbed the knife" and a defensive wound on her right thumb.

Rudd said police recovered the knife believed to have been used in the attack and that judging from the injuries it's about 4 inches long.
