SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — A 13-year-old girl accused of repeatedly stabbing her mother has now made her first appearance in juvenile court.

According to WOAI TV, deputies found bloody brass knuckles and a dumbbell also used in the attack on the 11000 block of Talon Run.

Investigators say the 33-year-old mother was rushed to the hospital, and she is believed to be in critical condition at this time.

The attack happened on Thursday around 6 p.m., but there is no word on what triggered the attack.

The name of the suspect is not being released, due to her age. She appeared in juvenile court Tuesday morning wearing a prison jumpsuit and pigtails.
