Tragedy strikes former Albion family in Alabama Stabbing.
A violent domestic incident in the state of Alabama has left an Albion woman and her daughter dead.
2017 Albion High School graduate, Rosa Lee Maldonado and her mother 44 year old Rosa Aminta, lived in a mobile home in Lester, Alabama.
Rose Lee who was only 19 years old was allegedly stabbed by her 15 year old sister who also lived in the trailer and remains the prime suspect.
Deputies with the Limestone County Alabama Sheriff’s Office said they had been called to the home for prior disturbances and there were indicators of an ongoing domestic issue.
The 15 year old girl was reportedly stabbing herself in the head and neck attempting to commit suicide when police arrived on scene. She was taken for treatment to a hospital.
The family suffered another tragic loss in 2011 when Rosa’s daughter, 15 year old Katherine Sanchez was raped and murdered by her brother-in-law in Orleans County.
