SANDY, Utah (ABC4 News) – Police say a woman turned herself in after police found her mother with multiple stab wounds at a hotel Saturday afternoon.

Sandy City Police Sgt. Jason Nielsen said they were called to the Extended Stay Hotel at 7555 S. Union Park Ave around 2 p.m.

When they arrived, they found the woman with stab wounds to her chest, next arm and hand and face. The woman told police her daughter, Jayde Altemeier is the one who stabbed her, documents state.

According to charging documents, the woman knew her daughter was suicidal and homicidal prior to the incident.

While at the hotel, her daughter came into her room and attacked her with a knife. Three of the stab wounds were in locations that could have killed the woman, documents state.
