Ohio teen held in stabbing of foster mother

WILLOUGHBY, Ohio (AP) — A judge has ordered a $750,000 bond for an Ohio teenager accused of fatally stabbing her foster mother.

The (Willoughby) News-Herald (http://bit.ly/QpX12w ) reports that 18-year-old Sabrina Zunich was arraigned Monday in municipal court. She is accused of killing foster mother Lisa Knoefel early Friday.

Zunich did not enter a plea at the arraignment.

Police in Willoughby Hills, east of Cleveland, got a 911 call early Friday from a 13-year-old girl screaming that her sister had a knife and was attacking her mother. Officers found Zunich in the house covered with blood and holding the knife.

Knoefel, who worked at the Division of Children and Family Services in neighboring Cuyahoga County, was found in a first-floor bedroom with fatal stab wounds.

Authorities have not publicly discussed a motive.
