SWEDEN, N.Y. (WROC) — The woman accused of killing her son in April of 2018 is scheduled to appear back in court on Tuesday.
In the weeks leading up to the child’s killing — deputies responded twice to Mouhib’s home in the town of Sweden.
Deputies said they were called to a home on South Lake Road in Sweden for a report of a suicidal woman with a knife.
Once investigators were able to secure the scene, they found multiple people inside, including other children, the woman’s husband and another relative. Deputies say they ordered Mouhib to drop a knife, but she refused. Deputies used pepper spray and a taser to get her to drop the weapon.
As they searched the home, deputies found the body of seven-year-old Abraham Cardenas. Deputies say Cardenas had been stabbed in the back and severely cut at the neck, causing his head to be severed from his body.
