“A Northwest Miami-Dade woman accused of stabbing her husband and teenage child also submerged her infant daughter in a bathtub during a bizarre baptism while screaming about Jesus and worrying that COVID-19 was coming to kill her family, according to multiple law enforcement sources.
Police believe the woman’s husband was stabbed while trying to intervene in what may have been a violent mental health episode. Her teenage daughter was also stabbed during the incident, police said.
By Tuesday afternoon, Miami-Dade police had not publicly released information on how the infant died. The Miami-Dade Medical Examiner’s Office was to conduct an autopsy on the child, who was rushed to the hospital, but could not be revived.
When police reached the home at 3005 NW 99th St., they found the woman’s husband on the front lawn with stab wounds and the woman inside the home with what they believe were self-inflicted stab wounds. The 15-month-old girl was found unresponsive in the bathtub and taken to Jackson North Medical Center, where doctors pronounced her dead.
Police said the couple’s four other children, all under 11, escaped and ran to a neighbor’s home. None were injured.
As of Tuesday afternoon, police had not officially released the names of the woman, 38, her husband, also 38, or the couple’s teenage daughter. Property records list the owners of the home as Evan and Precious Leslie Bland. A source said the woman goes by Leslie Bland.
All three remained hospitalized…”
