Lawrencia Reed Arrested
According to police, Reed has been charged with first-degree murder and three counts of attempted first-degree murder.
No word just yet on when she is expected to face a judge.
People who live in the Huntington Hills Apartments describe what they could hear and see late Friday night.
“I looked to my right and all I could see was a baby running and she just collapsed in the middle of the street,” one woman said. “It hurt my heart so bad. I cried for that baby last night.”
The day after, a neighbor who did not want to go on camera is still wrestling with that heartache that won’t go away. Understandably, she was shocked Friday night watching the aftermath of the deadly attack.
She adds that she didn’t realize that things were so chaotic until later; Reed’s 18-year old sister was also stabbed and left fighting for her life.
“Lord rest that baby’s soul, and her sister. And she tried to kill the little baby. She tried to drown the little baby in the tub with her,” the woman said.
