Prosecutors will determine whether she will be formally charged in the death of Leon Thomas III, who was found with multiple stab wounds.

Officers were called about 11 p.m. Saturday to an Indianapolis apartment, where they found the bleeding boy. He was pronounced dead at a local hospital.

Police later found the teenager, bloodied and walking along a nearby street.

Adams said the boy and his 11-year-old sister were at their grandparent’s apartment at the time of the attack. Investigators said the grandparents were in an upstairs room when the attack occurred. No additional details were released.
