A mother in Christian County, Kentucky called authorities after finding messages on her daughter’s Skype account that claimed she was poisoning her brother to “get rid of him.” That’s according to an incident report from the Christian County Sheriff’s Office. 

The 12-year-old girl is now charged with attempted murder.

According to the report, the girl told a man in Texas on Skype that she was going to poison her brother with Mr. Clean. The girl’s mother confronted her and told deputies her daughter admitted to poisoning her 4-year-old brother because she thought her mom loved him more. 

Deputies talked to the girl and reported the girl also admitted to them she put Mr. Clean in her brother’s water and said it was because “he was annoying her.”

The girl was placed under arrest and taken to a psychiatric hospital for evaluation by order of a judge. 

A sheriff’s deputy tells News 2 the boy was sick but has since recovered.
