July 27, 2002 Posted: 12:16 PM EDT (1616 GMT)

NEW YORK (AP) -- A 7-year-old girl died after being stabbed 30 times by her mother, who critically injured another woman before she repeatedly stabbed herself, police said.

Tashima Billingslea was declared dead about an hour after being rushed to a hospital Friday. Her mother, Yolanda Billingslea, 27, was in critical but stable condition Saturday at Woodhull Hospital. Charges were pending, police said.

The other woman, Aishia Byrd, 24, was in critical condition Saturday at Kings County Hospital.

Capt. Jim Klein said the two women were in Billingslea's apartment when they began to fight. Police said they did not know what led to the dispute.

By the time two men intervened, Byrd had been stabbed more than a dozen times. Billingslea also had stabbed herself numerous times, Klein said. Two knives and a pair of scissors were recovered.
