Winchester police said they charged a woman in the fatal stabbings of her daughter and granddaughter in a press conference Tuesday morning, and said she admitted to stabbing both of them.

Police say Lillie Stanton, 48, faces two counts of murder in the Sunday stabbings of her daughter, Danel Korrey Stanton, 23, and her granddaughter, Kaydence Ray Miers, 22-months.

Officials said Stanton is still being treated at UK Hospital for self-inflicted knife wounds to her throat and wrists.

A possible motive in the killings wasn't released.
