Charges have now been filed against a 14-year-old girl in what is being referred to as the Mundelein murder. UPI reported on Jan. 23, 2014, that the Chicago-area teen faces first-degree murder charges for fatally stabbing her half-sister, who was just 11-years-old, to death.

The names of neither the victim or suspect have been released due to the fact that they are minors.

Police have said that the older girl went after and attacked her sister because she felt unappreciated. The older girl slashed at her half-sister and ended up cutting her more than 30 times. The incident happened on Tuesday morning in the suburb of Mundelein.

The 14-year-old first said that the attack happened due to an intruder, but she soon confessed to doing it herself.

It's "heartbreaking beyond understanding," said Mundelein Mayor Steve Lentz.

Around 8:30 a.m. on Tuesday morning, the suspect called the police and told them a girl had been stabbed. Upon their arrival, the police found the victim on the floor of a bedroom in the house. A small kitchen knife, believed to be the murder weapon, was found nearby.

There are discussions that the case could be moved to adult court.
