A 13-year-old Ohio girl was charged with murder after the fatal stabbing of another 13-year-old girl on Monday.

The incident happened around 9 p.m. in the Winton Hills neighborhood of Cincinnati.

The victim, Nyaria Givens, was slashed in the neck with a pocket knife during a verbal argument with another girl, according to court documents obtained by FOX19 Cincinnati. Givens later died at a hospital.

Givens’ mother, Ashley, told the station that the two girls used to be friends.

“After they had their differences, my daughter pretty much stayed to herself,” she said. “And ever since then, that’s when the bullying and the rumors and everything started with her.”
