Thuy Le called 911 on Wednesday morning, claiming that she stabbed her 5-year-old and 3-year-old daughter and herself. She was staying at her cousin’s house in Westminster that night. Le’s cousin’s children noticed the living room covered in blood when they woke up and told their parents. Le was seen cradling one of her daughters after the 911 call had been made. Pham, Le’s cousin, said she had not been herself lately. She was stressed with her failed marriage and her failing business and suddenly became very religious. After police arrived, they arrested Le on suspicion of two attempted murders. The children are still in the hospital but are expected to survive.
The children must have been so scared to see their mother stabbing them. Clearly, Le was not mentally stable at the time she committed these heinous acts. Attempted murder is a serious charge and Le will need an experienced attorney to assist her in court. If Le claims she is guilty by reason of insanity, she will have to spend the rest of her life in a mental facility. Whether you live in Tustin, Fullerton or Laguna Beach, if you are charged with murder or attempted murder, you will need an experienced criminal defense attorney to assist you.
