Mother charged in stabbing of girl at Anchorage overlook

ANCHORAGE, Alaska — A murder warrant has been issued for the mother of a 3-year-old girl found stabbed to death in a small car parked at an Anchorage scenic overlook.

Anchorage police say 24-year-old Kelsey Jackson of Anchorage will be arrested when she’s discharged from a hospital, where she’s recovering from self-inflicted stab wounds.

She faces charges of first- and second-degree murder in the death of the girl, whose name was not released. Online court records do not list Jackson’s attorney.

Airport police early Wednesday morning called in city officers after finding the child and woman in the parking lot of Point Woronzof (WORH-on-zawf) in west Anchorage.

The parking lot looks out over Turnagain Arm.

The girl suffered stabbing wounds to her chest.

The woman’s injuries were not life-threatening.
