    Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy added, “The fatal stabbing of Ms. Mosby is very sad and disturbing.

    Ms. Mosby was a nurse who was raising her granddaughter.

    Our prayers go out to her son and family. In this case the 14-year-old girl is being adult designated because upon conviction it gives the judge the most flexibility during sentencing to provide options for rehabilitation of this very troubled youth.”

    Police say Mosby’s body was found by her son, the suspect’s dad. When he found Mosby in the Canton home his daughter was not around.

    Officers were directed to a bedroom in the home where the victim’s body was facing down on the floor with several stab wounds.

    The prosecutor’s office stated the teen allegedly planned the crime, although no additional details were provided.

    On Feb. 21 the teen allegedly killed her grandmother by stabbing her multiple times with a kitchen knife.
