A Cherokee County grand jury has indicted on murder charges a 20-year-old woman accused of stabbing her 1-year-old daughter to death.
Chloe Alexis Driver, 20, of Knoxville, Tennessee and Jacksonville, Florida was indicted on charges of malice murder, felony murder, child cruelty and aggravated assault.
Police were called to a home in the Mountain View subdivision in Canton about 2:30 p.m. Dec. 9 where they discovered Driver and her baby in a bedroom, both suffering from stab wounds.
The child, Hannah Nicole Driver, was taken to Northside Hospital Cherokee where she died. Driver was taken to Wellstar Kennestone Medical Center in Marietta in serious condition.
Detectives arrested Driver following her release from the hospital. She remains in the Cherokee County jail.
The indictment and Driver’s arrest warrant allege she stabbed the baby multiple times in the throat with a knife. The arrest warrant indicates that she admitted to police that she stabbed her baby. Neither of the court documents indicates a motive for the attack, or how Chloe Driver’s wounds were sustained.
