Responding officers didn’t hear any noise coming from the house, but as they made their way to the back of the home they spotted the 8-year-old girl running towards the front door, KTRK-TV reported.

"So they go back to the front door and make entry, go inside. The little girl said, 'Daddy's stabbing mommy,'" Lt. R. Willkens from the Houston Police Department said. "They go in, they find both of them in the back bathroom. Both major injuries."
