Nevada arrested a woman and charged her with murder after her mother was found dead in their Henderson home on Tuesday.
CBS 8 reports that Carly Kalbfleisch, 26, reportedly stabbed her 65-year-old mother numerous times, causing fatal injuries. The incident took place off of the 3700 block of Via Gaetano Street, at close to noon. Kalbfleisch called 911 herself and reported a domestic disturbance with her mother.
Rebecca, Carly’s mother appeared to have over 70 stab wounds on her stomach, upper torso, and upper extremities. Her wrists had gaping wounds after apparently being “sawed” by a knife. She also sustained a wound that opened her scalp all the way to her skull, which is believed to have been caused by being hit with a paint can and/or a broken glass vase.
Kalbfleisch was arrested without incident at the home and transported to the Henderson Detention Center, where she was being held Wednesday on a charge of open murder.
As the woman was being led away, Carly asked police, ‘Please tell me she is dead’ without being asked any questions.
Carly was previously arrested in 2014 for domestic battery against her mother. At the time the daughter admitted grabbing her mother’s arms ‘in an angered effort to force [her mother]’ to put away two small barking dogs.
Of note, neighbors told of the daughter covered in white paint at the time of her arrest.
The murder came as Kalbfleisch had been promoting herself on social media as an aspiring actress, singer and model noted the dailymail.
Fewer than four hours before murdering her mother, Kalbfleisch had gone on instagram wishing everyone a good day, accompanied by a selfie of herself featuring a playful Snapchat cat filter.
Yet perhaps even more bizarrely, the daughter earlier this month had posted a video on Facebook in which she directed her followers to check out her a capella rendition of the Justin Bieber single Boyfriend on YouTube while tearfully thanking people for supporting her budding musical career.
In a message that accompanied the video, Kalbfleisch gushed about her love of pop music and credited her mother with getting her ‘hooked on music.’
Her final status update on Facebook was posted less than three weeks before her mother’s stabbing death; the message, flanked by a pair of heart emojis, read: ‘Do good & be happy.’
