Court documents say Nyaira and another 13-year-old girl got into an argument in Winton Hills, during which the other girl cut Nyaira on the side of her neck with a pocket knife.
“That was my baby, and they took that,” Ashley said through tears on Wednesday. “They took her from me. They took my baby.”
Ashley says Nyaira, an avid singer, dancer and TikTok artist, endured bullying from the girl prior to Monday’s incident.
“At a point in time, I can honestly say that they were friends,” she explained. “After they had their differences, my daughter pretty much stayed to herself… and ever since then, that’s when the bullying and the rumors and everything started with her.”
The other girl appeared in court on Wednesday. She is charged with two counts of murder and one count of felonious assault. Her lawyer asked that she be released to her mother, whom court documents show not to be her legal guardian.
