TULSA -- A trial date has been set for 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.

Ahmad stood mute during a court appearance on Monday morning, and the court entered a not guilty plea in her behalf. 

A trial date has been set for June 3.

Detectives said Ahmad 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.
