(Scroll down for video) A little girl is dead after she was stabbed forty times by her own sister, according to police reports in Illinois.

Chicago Police said that an 11-year-old girl was stabbed by her sister, 14, because she didn’t appreciate her enough.

Police who were called to the scene, found the girl unconscious in an upstairs bedroom of the family home on Tuesday morning. She was transported to a local hospital in critical condition where she later died.

The suspect initially told police officers that an intruder was to blame for the attack.

Police said that they received a 911 call about the incident at 8:30 a.m. on Tuesday. The call came from the 14-year-old girl.

The teen told emergency dispatchers that an intruder had broken into her house and attacked her sister.

However, the story of the teenager fell apart quickly. Under police questioning, she admitted to stabbing her sister.

The teenager told police she was angry that her sister did not like what she did for her.

The teenager said she cooks dinner for her younger sister and also performs other tasks.

After the stabbing, she took a shower to wash the blood and called the police.

The 14-year-old was arrested and charged with murder.

For now, the case is in juvenile court. Prosecutors said that the case could eventually be transferred to criminal court.
