Orange County deputies arrested a woman on Sunday in connection with the stabbing death of her daughter.

Deputies say the woman identified as Rosa Alcides Rivera, 28, drove up to Winnie Palmer Hospital in Orlando and asked a valet attendant for medical assistance for a female passenger.

Hospital staff told deputies she was argumentative as they determined that the female passenger was deceased.

Deputies say the passenger, later identified as Aleyda Rivera, 11, died after suffering multiple stab wounds.

She would have turned 12 years old on Thursday.

Deputies say the girl's mother is charged with first-degree murder.
