HOMESTEAD (CBSMiami) – A tragic scene playing out in Homestead on Sunday.
According to police, a mother stabbed and killed her two-year-old son before trying to kill herself.
Also in the hospital is an adult male, who police say was stabbed in the exchange.
The mother was transported to Homestead Hospital, where she is listed in critical condition.
Police have not yet confirmed or released the name of the mother who allegedly stabbed her son and tried to kill herself.
But a search of county records has turned up some information; a mug shot of a woman named Nataly Ramos, who neighbors identified her as the mother of the boy.
According to records pulled by CBS4, Ramos is facing charges of murder in the 2nd degree with a deadly weapon and a second count of attempted murder.
Neighbors say it was a typical Saturday night at that home. The entire family had gathered at grandma’s house and was having a party.
Neighbors say the grandmother has custody of the boy and the mother comes to visit him.
“The grandkid is like her world,” said a neighbor that did not want to be identified. “That’s her world, the little one is everything.”
Neighbors say they noticed that the boy’s mother was depressed, possibly suffering from mental illness.
Police are not releasing the identity of the adult male who was also stabbed.
He was taken to Jackson South Community Hospital.
His condition is unknown at this time.
