A mum identified as Rose Alcides Rivera, who killed her daughter because she doesn’t want her to have sex has been arrested by the police in Orlando.
The lady who turned up at hospital asking for help for her 11-year-old daughter who was already dead from multiple stab wounds, also pulled a knife on hospital workers before being arrested on Sunday. The 28-year-old mum later told investigators that she killed her daughter because she doesn’t want her to have sex with men.
“Rivera stated she stabbed her daughter while in the car, and while stabbing her she was attempting to make her more comfortable,” an investigator wrote in the report.
Rose who was charged with first-degree murder in the death of Aleyda Rivera, reportedly took the child to a man’s house and accused him of having sex with the girl. Rivera said she believed her daughter was having sex with men because she “smiled different,” the station reported, citing an affidavit. However after the deceased denied it, she stabbed her in the car.
Orange County Sheriff John Mina who spoke to newsmen, however said there appears to be no validity to Rivera’s claim that her daughter was sexually active.
“We believe that part of the investigation is unfounded,” Mina said, according to Orlando Weekly. “We are looking into that but don’t believe it to be credible, although we are still continuing the investigation.”
