The Winchester woman accused of stabbing her daughter and granddaughter to death was released from the hospital...and taken to jail Wednesday afternoon.

According to The Winchester Sun, Winchester Police Capt. James Hall said Lillie Stanton was released from the University of Kentucky Medical Center around 2:30PM.

Police say Stanton admitted Monday to stabbing her daughter, Danel Korrey Stanton, 23, and granddaughter, Kaydence Ray Miers, 22-months, to death Sunday.

She still had bandages over what officials say were self-inflicted arm and neck wounds.

Detectives walked Stanton to the jail after an hour-long interview, and is now being held for two counts of murder.

Hall would not comment on Stanton's motive in the attacks, except to say it was not a random act.
