Sister Arrested in Brother's Stabbing Death

A sister has been arrested for allegedly stabbing her brother to death inside a Sylmar apartment over the weekend. The sister was arrested on suspicion of murder after her 17-year-old brother was stabbed in the chest and died on Saturday night in Sylmar.

Amber Reed, 20 was arrested for stabbing her 17-year-old brother, Parrish Reed, in the chest. Officers initially responded to a shooting, however, when they arrived on scene they found Parrish Reed lying on the floor of the Sylmar apartment with a stab wound to the chest. Parrish Reed was transported to the hospital but dies a short time later.

It appears as though the sister stabbed her brother over money. Police believe Amber Reed was arguing with her brother over money when she grabbed a knife from the kitchen and stabbed her brother in the chest.

Amber Reed was arrested and charged with murder in the stabbing death of her brother. She is being held in Los Angeles County Jail in lieu of $1 million bail.

Did Amber Reed go to court? was she allowed to attend her brothers funeral, I know this happened 5 years ago but I never heard what happened to her as far as a trial, and how did she feel about killing her brother.
