Pre-Teen Detained for Attempting to Murder her Mother

Friday, March 20, 2015

BOULDER COUNTY Colo- On March 6, 2015, deputies of the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office were dispatched to Boulder Community Hospital to investigate an assault. Subsequent investigation has developed evidence that a 12-year-old Boulder County girl attempted to kill her mother on two separate occasions.

On both attempts the girl used bleach. The first attempt on March 2, 2015 left her mother feeling ill after her daughter placed bleach into a breakfast smoothie she made. Mom noticed an odor of bleach in the drink and thought her daughter had cleaned the glass prior to making the beverage and did not rinse all the bleach out. Later in the week the girl poured bleach into a water carafe her mother kept in the bedroom. On the second occasion Mom noticed the odor of bleach in her water and confronted her daughter. This is when she learned her daughter had developed the plan to kill her for taking away her iPhone.

The juvenile was detained today at the Boulder County Juvenile Center.

The Boulder County Sheriff’s Office case number for this incident is 15-1270.
