Double murder suspect Lillie Stanton was released from the hospital this afternoon and lodged in the Clark County Detention Center, three days after she allegedly stabbed her daughter and granddaughter to death.
Stanton, 48 of 233 Vaught Road, still had bandages on both arms and her neck from her own self-inflicted wounds following the deaths of Danel Korrey Stanton, 23, and 22-month-old Kaydence Ray Miers Sunday afternoon.
Winchester Police Capt. James Hall said Lillie Stanton was released from the University of Kentucky Medical Center around 2:30 p.m. today. Following an hour-long interview at the police department, detectives walked her to the jail where she will be held for two counts of murder.
Hall said she reiterated her statement from the hospital Monday, in which she admitted to killing them both and how it occurred. Hall would not comment on her motive.
"It was not a spontaneous act," Hall said.
So far, a bond has not been set.
