I smell deep-rooted emotional issues. Carry-on.

The DeKalb teenager who stabbed her 2-year-old stepsister 7 times will be tried as an adult, The Atlanta Journal Constitution reports. DeKalb police have charged the 13-year-old girl with the murder of her 2-year-old half sister, Sasha Ray. “The girl had multiple stab wounds,” said DeKalb County police spokeswoman Mekka Parrish, who told reporters the teen would be charged as an adult. “The 13-year-old was angry about something,” Parrish said.

Sasha’s parents left her and her siblings in the care of the teenager on Monday while they ran errands.

The parents returned home around noon and were told Sasha was missing. After a search, the toddler was found dead in the backyard of the family’s Decatur condo in Waldrop Station.

Sasha’s father, Shelton Ray told Channel 2 Action News that his stepdaughter confessed to him in a phone call from jail.

Ray told Channel 2 he takes comfort in knowing his daughter is in a better place. “She’s gone on to glory now. Now it’s up to me to make it to where she is,” he said. “She is in a better place than I am, and with that known, I know I’m good.”

    There’s more to this story and a normal 13 year old is old enough to watch her 2 year old sister for a few hours. Being a mother and grandmother I’n not feeling enough grief through the murdered child’s father. Sure the baby is in a better place…but is that all he’s got to say?

  • I know right and the parents do not seem that affected..damn shame!!

    its plain simple jealousy a child that age will feel resentful and do some pretty shitty things to another if they are not getting the attension they feel they deserve. Blended families are not all roses and I want to know where the older kids mother is in all this as these two were step sisters. How did daddy and stepmom have custody of her. This is a tragedy of epic proportions.

    There are some deep issues in this family. It sounds like the parents weren’t paying attention to what was going on with the older child. If they had, they might have sensed that they shouldn’t trust the other kids in her care. In reality, thirteen is not old enough to be responsible for children that young. But, that doesn’t mean that any 13-year-old would have done this.
