Mother: 10-Year-Old Daughter Stabbed 40 Times

Posted: Updated:

LAS VEGAS -- The mother of the 10-year-old girl who was found dead last week said her daughter was stabbed 40 times.

Tejuana Reeves-Morris, the mother of Jade Morris, spoke with reporters as she picked up her daughter's belongings from the Clark County Coroner's Office.

Among the items Reeves-Morris retrieved Thursday was a young girl's watch and a candy cane Jade had gotten from school.

The brutal details surrounding her death are almost too much to comprehend according to Jade's mother.

"She stabbed her over 40 times, it's ridiculous," Reeves said. "I know everybody was looking forward to viewing her and saying goodbye, but that can't happen. There will be a slide show and showing pictures of when she was happy."

A victim's advocate group called Safe Faith United has decided to help the family by auctioning off a coat that was given to them by a private donor. The goal is to raise $5,000 to cover expenses.

"It means the world to me and everything that everybody's done for me," Reeves said. "The community has been amazing and I can't believe how much support I've gotten."

The on-again, off-again girlfriend of Jade's father, Brenda Stokes, has been arrested and charged in the girl's murder.
