MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A woman accused of stabbing a mother with a machete and taking her baby in Walls, Mississippi, recently was arrested in the Memphis area.

Belinda King-Maxwell was booked into the Shelby County Jail on Wednesday on a fugitive warrant.

Tobyianna Hicks, 17, said King-Maxwell had offered to give her baby clothes for free. But the encounter turned dangerous when she said King-Maxwell stabbed her several times and took her baby.

“She was like, ‘Come save her if you love her.’ It turned me into a beast, and I just ran up and started fighting her,” Hicks said.

King-Maxwell will be extradited to Walls on July 8.
