(Scroll down for video) A girl is being held without bail for the murder of her friend.

Police in Chicago, Illinois, arrested the 13-year-old girl and her mother for the death of a star student.

Authorities have video, showing the 13-year-old girl getting into a fight with a group of girls.

People watched and took video as the fight escalated. Sadly, nobody broke up the fight. Instead, the girl’s mother, Tamika Gayden, 35, handed her a knife.

The 13-year-old girl used the knife to stab 15-year-old DeKayla Dansberry to death.

A witness told police that the 13-year-old girls cried: “I killed her, I killed her,” as she washed the bloody knife.

Gayden and her daughter were arrested on a charge of first-degree murder. Gayden was also charged with felony contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

Judge Cynthia Ramirez warned the press not to disclose the name of the suspect because of her age.

The judge also warned people on social media not to disclose the age of the girl or they will face criminal charges.
