By AP/KWMU

St. Louis, MO – Police say a three-year old boy stabbed his two-year old sister to death in south St. Louis Wednesday. But they add it isn't clear if the boy intended to hurt her.

The girl is identified as Jamarria Bolar. She was stabbed in the neck in an apartment at Grand & Wilmington.

Police say the mother had only briefly left the children unattended when they apparently got a knife. The boy is in the custody of his father.
