Woman Arrested in Stabbing Death of Child

Authorities have arrested a woman in connection to a stabbing that resulted in the death of her toddler earlier this month in Canton.

Chloe Driver, 20, is facing several charges for the murder of her 13-month-old daughter, Hannah, Canton police said.

When officers arrived, they said they found both the child and the mother in an upstairs bedroom. The child was rushed to the hospital where she later died. The child’s mother was initially listed in critical condition.

Driver was arrested on Tuesday after being discharged from the hospital. Her charges include felony murder with malice, cruelty to children, aggravated assault with intent to rape/murder/rob, and aggravated battery.

“The mother has been in hospital for two weeks… this is a suspected suicide, murder suicide,” Pacer said.

Driver, who has ties to Tennessee and Florida, was being held at the Cherokee County Adult Detention Center.
