Girl, 15, "stabbed her mother and sister to death" in Alabama, before turning the knife on herself in a botched suicide attempt

A teenager has been charged with the murder of her mother and sister in what police believe was a failed murder-suicide bid.

Rosa Aminta Maldonado, 44, and her daughter Rosa Lee Maldonado, 19, were found dead of apparent stab wounds inside their home in Lester, Limestone County, Alabama, at around 1am on Thursday. Emergency responders also found a girl, 15, inside the residence, who they say was stabbing herself in the head and neck in an apparent suicide attempt.

She has since been charged with two counts of capital murder in Limestone County, WHNT19 reported. Officials claimed that because she is a minor, no other details will be released.

Rosa Aminta Maldonado, 44, and her daughter Rosa Lee Maldonado, 19, were very close.

Limestone County Sheriff's Public Information Officer Stephen Young told The News Courier of Athens:

Preliminary evidence indicates (the 15-year-old) stabbed and killed her sister and mother in a domestic altercation at the residence, eventually using a knife on herself as well in a suicide attempt.

Sheriff Mike Blakely said the emergency call which was understood to be made by one of the deceased women was "one of the worst" he listened to in his 47 years of law enforcement.

He said:

You've got two individuals in the process of being murdered, screaming, asking for help and asking the assailant to please stop.

Someone who speaks fluent Spanish is helping us dissect some of the Spanish that was spoken in the tape.

This isn't the first time the family will experience tragedy. Maldonado was struck by tragedy years earlier when her other, daughter Katherine Sanchez was raped and killed by her brother-in-law, Carlos Cardenas, in January.

Carlos Cardenas was sentenced to life in prison for the murder of Katherine Sanchez.
