SWEDEN, NY (WROC) – A woman is facing murder charges for the death of a child in Sweden Thursday.

Hanane Mouhib, age 36, was arraigned Friday morning for the death of Abraham Cardenas, officials say.

Deputies said they were called to a home on South Lake Road in Sweden around 8:19 p.m. 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, and the body of a seven-year-old boy.

In court papers, deputies say Abraham had been decapitated with a knife by Mouhib.

News 8 is expecting a briefing from deputies at 11:45 a.m.

News 8 will carry that briefing online. You can watch it here or below:

In a statement, Brockport school district officials said Abraham Cardenas was a first grader at Barclay Elementary School.

“We are deeply saddened to learn of the death of one of our students,” writes Superintendent Lesli Myers. “Our heartfelt condolences go out to Abraham’s family, friends and all affected by this tragedy. Any loss of life is a loss to our entire community. Our district’s Trauma, Illness and Grief team was immediately mobilized upon learning of this tragedy. We will have counselors available to provide support this weekend and throughout the week for students, staff and families in need.”

We’re told Mouhib worked for Rochester Regional Health from January 2016 to January 2017. According to the health group’s website, she worked as a nurse practitioner at Rochester Mental Health Center. Before that, the College at Brockport reports Mouhib was a nursing student from Fall 2009 to May 2011 when she graduated.
