MARIETTA, Ga. (AP) - A teenager accused of fatally stabbing her 17-year-old step-cousin in suburban Atlanta last year has been indicted on four charges, including malice murder and felony murder.

WXIA-TV (https://on.11alive.com/1PlOwSa ) reports that 18-year-old Olivia Smith of Canton was indicted Thursday by a Cobb County grand jury in connection with the Nov. 14 death of Abbey Hebert of Acworth.

A search warrant says Smith admitted to stabbing Hebert with a knife after the two smoked marijuana and got into an argument inside the victim’s house.

Police say Smith stabbed Hebert inside the house, then chased her outside, where a witness saw Hebert get stabbed multiple times.

Detective Matt Fuller testified in December that Smith told a neighbor that God had “made her” commit the crime.

Smith’s attorney says his client is very remorseful.
