(Scroll down for video) A family was left with a lot of questions over the death of a sweet young girl.

Now, the girl’s teenage mother of Columbus, Ohio, was arrested for stabbing her 19-month-old daughter to death before calling 911, police said.

17-year-old Lachelle Anderson was arrested and charged with murder.

Authorities said that Anderson called 911 and told a dispatcher that her baby, Lalanna Sharpe, needed medical attention.

When police arrived at the house, they found that the girl was stabbed several times.

Sharpe was taken to Nationwide Children’s Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

Police questioned the mother and she was arrested. Sgt. Jeff Strayer said after completing the investigation process, “we feel comfortable enough to charge her with murder.”

Charlet Chisolm, the grandmother of the baby, said that she and her son, Chavas Sharpe, who is the baby’s father, are devastated over the loss of Lalanna.

She said that her son spent a lot of time with his daughter. Chisolm did not want to comment on Lachelle’s mental state.

However, she did have advice for other parents: “If you think a parent can’t handle being a parent, take the child. Don’t let the parent around the child.”
