‘Mommy tried to kill me’

A sleeping six-year-old Wisconsin girl was  repeatedly stabbed by her mother with a 7-inch steak knife, police say.

‘Mommy tried to kill me,’ the terrified young  victim, Adrianna -who is recovering from life-threatening stab wounds, told an officer after the  harrowing attack.

Police say the girl’s mother Tasha D. Harmon,  29, entered her daughter’s bedroom while the girl slept, around 2:30am on Monday  at Harmon’s apartment in Fitchburg, Wisconsin.

The crazed mom allegedly stabbed the girl  several times in the chest and back, inflicting critical injuries including a  punctured lung.

The mom then turned the knife on herself,  stabbing herself on her chest and throat.

Covered in blood after the attack, Harmon  walked next door to the apartment of a neighbour and said, ‘I just stabbed my  daughter and myself,’ according to the search warrant obtained by the Wisconsin  State Journal.

In a panic, the neighbour raced to Harmon’s  home to find Adrianna covered in blood, laying on her bed with the steak knife  at her feet.

The girl was hospitalized and listed in  critical condition. She is expected to recover.

The mom was also hospitalized for her  injuries.

She was released on Thursday and moved to the  Dane County Jail, where she is expected to be charged with attempted  first-degree intentional homicide, according to Fitchburg police Lt. Todd  Stetzer.

The motive for the attack remains unclear.  Court documents reveal Harmon told police, ‘I went crazy.’

Court records show that the 29-year-old has a rap sheet — with a previous felony conviction for second-degree  reckless  endangerment in 2007 and misdemeanor convictions for issuing bad checks, in  addition to other charges.
