Cadedra Cook, 18, was apprehended a day after the incident, after allegedly fleeing on foot with a 15-year-old boy, whose name was not released. Both are charged with murder.
“We had been one step behind them most of the night,” Cedartown Polie Department Assistant Police Chief Jamie Newsome told the paper.
Police say the victim, a 27-year-old with one child, was making a delivery at the home where Cook lived. She had 50 stab wounds and was pronounced dead at a local hospital, according to the Daily Mail.
Officers conducting a traffic stop near Cook’s residence say they heard Hutcheson’s screams and rushed to the scene, according to Fox 6 WBRC.
