Teenager stabs 61 year old woman in Neck and chest, cutting her ear off before robbing and stealing her car.
A teenager from Mississippi has been charged after he allegedly stabbed a woman and cut off her ear.
Corey Smith, 13, was charged in connection with the attack that left a 61-year-old Jackson resident in critical condition.
The unidentified woman was attacked in her driveway late Tuesday night.
A family member told KMBC that after the woman backed her vehicle into her driveway, got out and walked to her house.
At that moment, the young teen ran over to her and cut off her ear before stabbing her multiple times in the neck and chest.
He then ran off with the woman’s purse and car keys before driving off in her car. Police said that the woman was found in a pool of blood.
She has since had to undergo several surgeries and is still in critical condition.
Smith was charged as an adult with aggravated assault, auto theft and armed robbery.
Mississippi police said the woman's 2016 orange Toyota RAV4 was found on Wednesday morning, just a few hours after it was stolen.
