A Detroit mother has been charged with murder in the death of her 8-year-old daughter.

Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy said Wednesday that 26-year-old Semeria Greenenot Demeria Greene is charged with felony murder and first-degree child abuse.

Her daughter, Tameria Greene, was found stabbed in the chest Dec. 30.

"This is only the second day of the year and we are charging a parent with a child homicide. This is case is made even more profoundly sad because today would have been Tameria's 9th birthday," Worthy said.

Greene is expected to be arraigned on Thursday.

A conviction on the murder charge carries a maximum penalty of life in prison without parole. The child abuse charge carries a maximum 15-year prison sentence.
