A judge has ordered the boy to undergo a psychiatric evaluation.

A 9-year-old boy has been charged with first degree attempted murder after stabbing his 5-year-old sister multiple times.

According to CNN, the children's mother had left their Florida apartment for 10 minutes. She returned to find her son stabbing her daughter with a kitchen knife in his room, screaming "Die, die!".

The boy told a police officer who arrived on the scene that he went into the kitchen, got a knife and hid it behind his back as he approached his sister, who was bent over trying to show him something on the floor. He then grabbed her by her neck and stabbed her.

The mother said she grabbed the knife from her son when she returned and rushed her daughter to the bathroom, at which point her son ran out of their apartment. The boy was later located in their apartment complex and taken into custody.

When asked why he stabbed his sister, the boy stated that "the thought had entered his head two days earlier", and he tried to get it out of his head but could not.

The girl was airlifted to a nearby hospital for treatment.

A judge has ordered the boy to undergo a psychiatric evaluation. He has been assigned a public defender and will appear in court.
