A young Kenton mother was stabbed to death in front of her daughter earlier this week.
The Kenton Times newspaper reports 28-year-old Teresa Nelson called 911 on Tuesday morning when her ex-boyfriend showed up at the rural Kenton home where she lived with her 8-year-old daughter and grandmother.
22-year-old Justin Manns was able to break in before deputies could arrive, and he stabbed Nelson numerous times before killing himself.
Hardin County Sheriff Keith Everhart said deputies tried to get to the home on County Road 195 as fast as they could.
Children’s services is helping care for Nelson’s daughter.
