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.

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.
