A WOMAN brutally stabbed her sister 23 times – after asking a child to get her “more weapons”.

Carla McGhee, 31, flew into a rage at the flat in Gorbals, Glasgow last September.

A number of terrified people there – including her sister Shannon McGhee – hid in a bedroom barricading themselves with a wardrobe.

But, prosecutor Duncan McPhie told the High Court in Glasgow: “She stabbed a kitchen knife through the bedroom door.

“She repeatedly threw her body against the door until it came off its hinges.

“She shouted: 'I'm going to f*****g kill youse'. A child was at the side of the door near to her screaming as she was armed with a knife.

“McGhee instructed him to obtain more weapons for her.”

“She managed to get through the bedroom door and stab her sister 23 times as others fled.”

Police raced to the flat after a number of 999 calls.

The child told officers: “She is stabbing her. Someone stop her.”

McGhee, of the city's Maryhill, was held as her sister Shannon was rushed to hospital.

She had “multiple stab wounds” to her head, neck, back and hand.

Shannon was put into a coma and later needed surgery for a bowel injury as well as a blood transfusion.

Mr McPhie: “She would have died without medical intervention and is left permanently scarred.”

The court heard crazed McGhee went on to attack a female police custody officer after being arrested.

She lost the plot after being told her clothes were being taken for evidence at the city's Cathcart police station.

Mr McPhie: “McGhee became aggressive, repeatedly punched her on the face and pulled a clump of hair from her.”

The hearing was told it was done with such force the woman has been left with “some permanent hair loss”.

McGhee is now behind bars after she today pled guilty to attempting to murder her sister.

She also admitted to assaulting the police worker to her severe injury and permanent disfigurement.

Lord Beckett deferred sentencing on the mum of three until next month for reports.
