An Albion graduate and her mother were stabbed to death last night in Lester, Alabama.

Rosa Lee Maldonado, 19, graduated from Albion in 2017. She was allegedly killed by her 15-year-old sister.

The sister also allegedly fatally stabbed their mother, 44-year-old Rosa Aminta Maldonado. The family had recently moved to Alabama.

The Limestone County Sheriff’s Office responded to the family’s home at about 1 a.m. and found the two victims dead, Alabama news organizations are reporting.

The 15-year-old girl also had stabbed herself in the neck and head area. She was taken to Huntsville Hospital to be treated for her injuries.

The Limestone County Sheriff’s Office told reporters deputies had been called to the home in the very recent past and had prior interactions with the suspect in the case.

Many of Rosa Lee Maldonado’s classmates and friends from Albion this evening have posted their condolences and shock through social media.
