(WXYZ) — Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy has charged a 14-year-old Canton girl for allegedly stabbing her grandmother to death.

According to the prosecutor's office, the 14-year-old has been charged with first-degree murder and second-degree murder, but is not being charged as an adult. She has been adult-designated, meaning the judge can sentence her as a juvenile or as an adult.

According to police, they responded to the home of 65-year-old Cynthia Mosby on Feb. 22 after her body was found by her son, who is the girl's father.

The girl was not home at the time.

Police say the girl planned to kill her grandmother and then fled to a motel in Southgate, where she was taken into custody.
