A 52-year-old man was stabbed to death by his own daughter on Tuesday morning, shortly before the young woman turned against her mother.


The attack was carried out at the family’s house in Beringen, near Schaffhausen, local reports said.

The 21-year-old attacker fled the scene, but later turned herself in at a local police station where she was arrested.

Her 51-year-old mother, who was seriously injured in the attack, was treated by paramedics on site before being airlifted to the hospital, reports said.

A knife that was allegedly used in the attack was seized at the apartment, reports said.
