A 26-year-old Detroit mother of five is making her first court appearance on a murder charge in the stabbing death of her 8-year-old daughter.

Tameria Greene was found bleeding early Sunday on the floor of the family's apartment. Mother Semeria Greene was arrested and her four sons were taken into protective custody. Greene is due to be arraigned Thursday afternoon on felony murder and child abuse charges.

Michigan's human service director Maura Corrigan says family, friends and neighbors had complained to her agency about Greene's treatment of her five children. Corrigan says child welfare workers had tried repeatedly to remove them from Greene's care in the past two years.

Corrigan says a court denied the last request one month before Tameria's death. The girl would have turned 9 on Wednesday.
