Janee Pedescleaux, 31, was arr’ested on suspicion of second-degree murder, attempted murder and second-degree cruelty to a juvenile, police said.

A 4-year-old girl was k!lled and a 2-year-old boy was in critical condition after a woman stabbed them in a “guardian-related” incident, police in Louisiana said.

The attack was reported at about 11 a.m. Sunday on Law Street, New Orleans police said.

Officers responding to a call about a stabbing learned that the two children “sustained stab wounds to their bodies,” police said in a statement.

Both children were taken in a private car to a hospital, where the girl died. The boy remained in critical condition, police said.

Janee Pedescleaux, 31, was arrested on suspicion of second-degree murder, attempted murder and second-degree cruelty to a juvenile, police said.

The preliminary investigation indicates that the incident is “guardian-related in nature,” the release said.

Pedescleaux is believed to be the person in a video shared Sunday on Instagram that showed a woman talking to the camera with blood visible on her body and shirt, a law enforcement source told the Times-Picayune/New Orleans Advocate.

Janee Pedescleaux, a mother from New Orleans, is charged with murdering her four-year-old daughter and attempting to murder her two-year-old son after she did an Instagram live showing blood trickling down her chest on Sunday, August 7.

The New Orleans Police Department reported that 31-year-old Janee Pedescleaux was detained at the scene on allegations of second-degree murder, attempted murder, and second-degree cruelty to a youngster.

According to police, the incident happened on Sunday at around 11 am local time at a house on Law Street in the Florida area.

The girl, aged 4, and the boy, aged 2, were stabbed by Pedescleaux, who killed the older child, named Paris, and seriously injured the younger one. She then went live on Instagram.

In the live stream that has since been deleted, Pedescleaux can be seen looking into the camera wearing a blood-stained tank top. She has an emotional meltdown and blames the childen’s father, Jermaine, for her actions:

“I’m done. My children are dead. I’m done. I’m done with life. It’s all Jermaine’s fault.”

What did the children’s father do after seeing the Instagram live?

According to Daily Mail, as the live stream started, Jermaine Roberts, the father of the kids, became aware of the situation and rushed to the house. Footage taken from a camera in a neighboring home captured him pulling up in his white truck, getting out, and sprinting towards the house.

He then stormed out of the house carrying the girl in his arms while the boy followed behind them.

The father crammed the kids into his pickup and hurried them to the hospital, where his 4-year-old daughter succumbed to her wounds. His 2-year-old son was also in serious condition as of Sunday afternoon.

that’s certainly going to make her attorney happy. ?

According to court documents, Janee Pedescleaux and Jermaine Roberts were involved in a custody dispute.

In April, Roberts filed a lawsuit against Pedescleaux, asking for shared custody so he could spend the weekend with the kids. According to court documents, he said that Pedescleaux was refusing to let him see the children and that neither she nor the environment she was providing for them was stable.

A hearing in the case was scheduled to happen later in August. Reverend Johnny Arvie, a pastor at Law Street Baptist Church, which is next door to the home where the incident happened, also commented on the case.

He said:

“I gave my card to a family member so they could call me, but that’s about all I can do. And pray for the family and the community. It’s sad. I’m concerned about the mental illness in our community and in our city.”
In June, a similar tragic stabbing occurred in the town of Nunn, Colorado, where 18-year-old Leiyla Cepeda was charged with two counts of first-degree murder when she reportedly stabbed her infant daughter to death, after she was born.

Authorities eventually discovered the infant with multiple puncture wounds and a pair of scissors nearby.

Janee Pedescleaux was arrested and booked into the Orleans Justice Center.
