TULSA — A woman accused of stabbing her 11-year-old daughter dozens of times, trying to set her house in fire and causing an Amber Alert for her other daughter, made a blind plea during a court appearance on Tuesday.

Detectives said Ahmad initially confessed to gagging her three girls and duct-taping them inside her house. Detectives said she also confessed to stabbing one of her daughters and hitting her in the head with a pick axe.

Police said Ahmad did it because she didn't like the way her daughters were reading.

The child who was repeatedly stabbed has recovered.

She faces four charges, including two counts of child neglect, one count of assault and battery by means likely to produce death and first-degree arson.
