The suspect, 18-year-old Jaylen Latrell Plummer, entered the home where Diane Madison, 62, and three children — two 10-year- olds and a 12-year-old — slept and began stabbing them in their bedrooms, police said.
Diane Madison was pronounced dead at the scene Saturday. Two of the children were able to run to a neighbor’s home and call for help, police said. Officers found the third child hiding in the house. The three young victims were taken to a children’s hospital.
Police said they found and arrested Plummer in the home’s shower. He had wounds on his hands and fingers and also had to be treated at a hospital.
