A 14-year-old Pennsylvania girl is facing charges after killing her 19-year-old wheelchair-bound sister in their family home. The girl reportedly stabbed her sister while their parents were asleep. She then called 911 herself to confess to the murder.
The Lancaster County District Attorney’s Office said in a press release that Claire Miller has been charged with homicide. She is being held in prison without eligibility for bail and will be tried as an adult in the killing of her older sister, Helen Miller.
According to WHTM-TV, court documents reveal that Claire called 911 at around 1:00 a.m. on Monday. She told authorities that “she killed her sister.”
The Daily Mail reported that when officers arrived at the scene, they found Claire outside the house “covered in blood and trying to wash her hands in the snow.”
“I stabbed my sister,” she repeatedly told the police.
When police entered the home, they found Helen laying on her bed with a blood-stained pillow covering her face and a knife stuck in her neck. First responders were unable to revive her.
The girls’ parents were asleep in the home at the time of the murder. Police have not yet confirmed a motive for the killing.
Manheim Township Police Chief Tom Rudzinski said, “When I heard about this I was almost instantly upset about it myself over the details that had been related to me. I don’t know that I have ever been a part of something that is quite as sad as this.”
Claire is a ninth-grader at Lancaster Country Day School. Steve Lisk, head of the school, issued a statement saying, “We are surprised by the news of this incident and we’re grieving ourselves even as we look to support the family and ensure support for all our students and families within our tight-knit school community.”
Sarah Delia, one of the family’s neighbors, said, “It’s not the kind of thing we would expect in our neighborhood. It’s very quiet and peaceful.”

I have been seeing a lot more children committing horrible crimes some are gang related but other make no sense neither do the gang crimes I wish I knew the reason but I don’t I could fix things if I did. Is it the food we are eating all the chemicals affecting the children’s brains or the sewer water we drink or the polluted air or just evil getting stronger in this world My heart goes out to the family and to that poor girl that was stabbed to death but also to the child that did the crime a whole family has just had their lives changed and some destroyed forever and a young girl has lost her life in prison and a 19 year old girl O pray is in heaven. If you have children let them know they are loved spend time with them and watch them ask them if something is wrong be their friend beside their parent. God bless you all
Might be related to being locked down from school. Would not be the first incident.
What is it these days? I grew up in a time when the Bible was considered just a book that my friends parents as my own had laying around the house somewhere. I can’t remember seeing anyone reading it except the priest who was giving mass Sunday morning. Growing up in a Christian home has made it possible for me to recall the readings which seem to parallel the times we’re living in right now! Holy smokes. I mean it’s like the nose on your face familiar to me. So saying that, I am encouraged to get myself a decent study Bible and use the time I have quarantined to do more with my time. This family in Pennsylvania is going through the wringer now. Does anyone over the age of 60 remember hearing about this type of tragedy happening with the frequency that it does now? Yes we had our share of craziness, like Charles Manson. I was going to write “ etc. “ after Manson but honestly I can’t think of anyone else at this moment. The point is, we are living in some really awful times right now. It is getting worse all the time. Hatred, racism, phobia’s for almost everything that is different than ourselves. We need a miracle. So pray for that family, especially the 14 year old kid who is now a murderer. While you are at it and praying to your idea of God, say one for the whole country. We need some help!!
THE “RELIGIOUS” WORLD NEEDS TO THROW OUT ALL THE HUMAN GARBAGE INTERPRETATION OF GOD’S WORD. STUDY THE NEW (CHRISTIAN) BIBLE AND FOLLOW IT WITHOUT ALLOWINF SO CALLED “REVEREND” OR “PASTOR” TELLING YOU HOW ,TO INTERPRET GOD’S WORD. HE TELLS US CLEARLY, PLAINLY AND SIMPLY!
1. BELIEVE JESUS IS GOD’S ONLY SON!
2.CONFESS THAT BELIEF BEFORE OTHERS.
2. BE BAPTIZED (IMMERSED) UNDER WATER FOR THE REMISSION OF YOUR SINS.IN HIS NAME!
3. ARISE A NEW HUMAN AND SEEK OUT OTHERS WHO ARE INTERESTED IN BECOMING CHRISTIANS ONLY.
4. MEET ON SUNDAY (THE FIRST DAY OF THE WEEK TO HEAR A SERMON PREACHED BY A BAPTIZED CHRISTIAN.
5.. SING & MAKE MELODY IN YOUR HEART (WITHOUT MAN-MADE INSTRUMENTS).
6. EAT THE BREAD (HIS BODY) AND DRINK THE FRUIT OF THE VINE (HIS BLOOD).
TAKE EVERY OPPORTUNITY TO PREACH THE SAME TRUTH TO OTHERS.
REMEMBER ALWAYS, THERE WAS AND STILL IS ONLY ONE BODY OF CHRIST. ALL THE MAN-MADE “CHURCHES” ARE SUPPORTED BY SATAN. MAY GOD BLESS YOU!
