HOUSTON — Officials say a woman has been charged with capital murder in the stabbing death of her 4-year-old daughter at a Houston apartment complex.

Deputy Thomas Gilliland of the Harris County sheriff's office said 34-year-old Laquita Lewis texted family members Sunday, telling them she had hurt her child. Gilliland said Lewis texted family members from the hospital, where she had been taken after being injured in a traffic accident.

The relatives contacted the sheriff's office. When deputies arrived, they found Fredricka Allen dead at the apartment.

Lewis is being held in the Harris County jail Monday.

Gilliland said deputies haven't determined why Lewis killed her daughter, though they believe she got into a fight with her boyfriend earlier Sunday.

What is with these crazy women, who are taking out their anger about a man, on the children!? You can not control a man! A man is going to do what he wants to do! That man isn't your child that you think you can control him! Count it a blessing that he doesn't want you anymore. You just may be better off with him! Don't hurt the children! Learn who you are sisters! Also, you may to find out about God says will happen to you for hurting his children. No punishment on this earth can come close.
