Mother Facing Child Charges for Stabbing Her Children

 Mother Arrested for Stabbing Both of Her Children


According to the police, a Valley area mother is now going to face child abuse charges after stabbing both of her children. How could anyone do that?


The court documents showed that Brenda Begay had called 911 on Monday. She claimed that both of her kids were dying.  When the police got to the scene at 13th Avenue and Ironwood Drive, what they found was heart breaking. They found a twelve year old girl with a stab wound to her chest.


The Phoenix Police investigators say that the young girl woke up to her mother stabbing her. The little girl then told the officers that she ran to her older, (thirteen year old) brother’s room and found that he was lying on the floor. Police say that Begay’s son also had multiple stab wounds to the chest and on his wrist.


Neighbor, Jesus Gamez, Statement about the Stabbing

Why would a parent do that to their own child? I want to know what her state of mind was during that time.


I doubt you would really want to know what the heck someone was thinking when they murder or attempt to murder someone. Those poor children.


The court documents also show that Begay actually admitted to the police that she had wanted her kids to die. She was “trying to protect them” from getting raped. The documents also suggest that Begay might be in-stable.


This wasn’t Begay’s first run in with the Department of Child Safety. She has prior cases with them, she was convicted in 2005 in a child abuse case. During the trial, the courts questioned Begay’s mental state. They conducted an evaluation and gave her some medication.  Begay has severed six months in jail and fifteen years probation.

Inflatable Santa Stabbing Starts a Police Investigtion

Phoenix Police Investigate Inflatable Santa Stabbing


The Phoenix police are now investigating after someone has stabbed an inflatable Santa in front of a South Phoenix Home. Talk about cruel and unusual. Who would want to stab an inflatable Santa.


James Ahlgrim’s Statement about the Stabbing (Santa Owner)

What’s the little inflatable Santa hurting?


According to the report, you could see two men that were spotted on a surveillance camera. You could see them walking by the Ahlgrim’s home. The two men then looked to see if the coast was clear, however they did not realize the camera was catching their every move, the Ahlgrim’s home caught them on three different cameras.


Mr. Ahlgrim’s Statment:

There’s another camera right here that picks up all the way to the end of the street.



You could even see on the tape, that one of the guys slowly approached the inflatable Santa.


Ahlgrim’s Statment

He was making sure, looking around to see if anyone was coming out of the house and there he goes stabbing him.



You can then see the man actually stabbing the poor innocent, inflatable Santa three times. Talk about an over kill. The incident happened just after dusk the Sunday right before Thanksgiving.


Ahlgrim Worries About His Kids Safety

The part that bothers me is that it was early in the evening and any one of my kids could have been coming out. If they are going to stab a Santa, what else are they going to stab?


Jason Ahlgrim wants both of the people in the video to be arrested, which you can’t blame him. For one, that’s his property and second what kind of sick person does this? What if the children would have been outside?What if the creeps come back?


Police are asking that if you have any information on this to please call the Phoenix Police Department.

The lady then turned to face Christoper Gale and that is when he told her that he was “I’m killing you to save the world”. She then pushed him away and screamed. The victim and suspect did not know each other.


Luckily a federal agent was in the store as well, he was off duty at the time. The federal agent was standing in line at the checkout when he heard the female victim scream.
