A Sheboygan mom is accused of stabbing her daughter's friend after she said she found boys sleeping in her home.

Takita Poe, who goes by the alias Michelle Brewer, told police she snapped. A criminal complaint says the mom walked in her home on North 12th Street Saturday around 4:30am and found her 14-year-old daughter and a boy sleeping in her bed, along with her daughter's 12-year-old friend and another boy.

Poe told police she swung a knife at her daughter, but hit the 12-year-old by accident.

The victim was taken to St. Nicholas Hospital with two stab wounds. The doctor says the knife went all the way through her arm. She severed an artery and required about 40 stitches.

Poe told police she grabbed the knife because her daughter was disrespectful for having boys in her house and in her bed. She faces 15 years in jail, if convicted.
