FITCHBURG (WKOW) -- Police say a Fitchburg mother accused of stabbing her young daughter will have a bail hearing Thursday, and it could happen at the hospital.
Thirty-year-old Tasha Harmon is still in the hospital after investigators say she stabbed her six-year-old daughter multiple times, then stabbed herself. Harmon is in serious but stable condition. Her daughter is still listed in critical condition Wednesday morning, but police have said she will survive.
Harmon is under guard at the hospital and Fitchburg police say if she is not released by Thursday, there will be a bail hearing for her at the hospital. Harmon has not been charged yet, but police say she can be charged while still in the hospital. Investigators anticipate the charge will be Attempted First Degree Intentional Homicide.
A search warrant filed by Fitchburg police shows after the stabbing, Harmon went to a neighbor's apartment. The neighbor told police Harmon was covered in blood and said, "I just stabbed my daughter and myself."
The warrant goes on to say that when she spoke to a Fitchburg police officer, Harmon said, "I went crazy, tried to kill my daughter and myself."
Later, when another officer went to check on the girl, the warrant states the girl said, "Mommy tried to kill me." The officer noticed a steak knife on the bed near the girl's feet.
The search warrant also shows investigators seized several pieces of evidence from the home, such as clothing, bedding, knives and carpet samples.
