A 14-year-old girl is due to face a children’s court charged with murdering a 10-year-old girl in north-east North South Wales.
Police were called to a Gunnedah home on Wednesday morning after it was reported that the younger girl had suffered serious lacerations.
The ABC reported that police sources said the girl had her throat cut and her body was mutilated.
The accused teenager, widely reported to be the 10-year-old’s cousin, was arrested nearby and taken to Gunnedah police station. She is due to appear before a children’s court on Thursday.
Gunnedah shire council said its thoughts and prayers were with the family involved.
“We are a strong and tight-knit community – and together we will support the family and our community through this event,” it said.
