A 32-year-old woman in Indiana is facing multiple felonies for allegedly trying to stab her dog for stealing her chicken sandwich only to miss and accidentally stab her 1-year-old niece in the neck.

Sharon C. Key was taken into custody on Wednesday and charged with one count of neglect of a dependent resulting in serious bodily injury and two counts of criminal recklessness committed with a deadly weapon, court records reviewed by Law&Crime show.

According to a probable cause affidavit, officers with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department shortly before 11 p.m. on Tuesday responded to a call regarding an injured toddler at the Days Inn located in the 8300 block of Craig Street. Upon arriving at the scene, first responders said they immediately located a 1-year-old girl who was suffering from what appeared to be a stab wound to the neck.

Emergency medical personnel rushed the child to the Riley Hospital for Children for treatment. Indianapolis Fox affiliate WXIN reported that the child was initially admitted to the facility in critical condition but was later upgraded to stable condition.

The child’s mother, who is also Key’s sister, told investigators that Key called her at about 10 a.m. that morning and asked if she could stay with her at the Days Inn. Key was dropped off at the hotel later that morning and drank alcohol for “most of the day.”

At about 10:30 p.m. that evening, the sisters went to Burger King and arrived back at the hotel around 20 minutes later and went up to their double-bed room. The mother said she laid her daughter down on her stomach atop the bed closest to the window and went into the bathroom to give her son a bath.
