ABILENE, Texas (AP) A 13-year-old boy is accused of fatally stabbing his 4-year-old half-sister, police said.

The boy faces capital murder charges and is being held at a juvenile center, said Abilene police Sgt. Tony Lassetter.

The boy called 911 Sunday night, indicating someone was injured, Lassetter said. Police found the girl dead in a bedroom with stab wounds.

Their mother was at work at the time, and a baby sitter had left, the Abilene Reporter-News reported Monday in its online edition.

Police do not know a motive but have questioned the teen, Lassetter said.
