INDIANAPOLIS – Indianapolis police say a 14-year-old girl found covered in blood faces a preliminary murder charge in her 4-year-old cousin’s stabbing death.

Police spokesman Kendale Adams said Sunday that the girl was arrested after being questioned by officers. She is being held on a preliminary murder charge at the Marion County Juvenile Detention Center.

Prosecutors will determine whether she will be formally charged in the death of Leon Thomas III.

Officers were called about 11 p.m. Saturday to an Indianapolis apartment, where they found the bleeding boy. He was pronounced dead at a local hospital.
