CINCINNATI (FOX19) - A 13-year-old girl is charged with stabbing another 13-year-old girl to death in Winton Hills Monday night, Cincinnati police announced Tuesday.

Officers responded to Topridge Place for a report of a person stabbed at 9:08 p.m.

Court documents say the girls got into a verbal argument and one pulled out a pocket knife and cut the other on the right side of her neck.

Nyaria Givens was taken to Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, where she succumbed to her injuries.

Her family says Nyaria was the second oldest of seven children and loved to care for her siblings.

They say she loved the camera, was obsessed with Tik Tok and loved to dance.

Nyaria’s family says they don’t know why the other girl would hurt her, but at this time they’re asking for prayers for both teens.

The other teen was charged early Tuesday, police say.

FOX19 NOW is not naming her because she is a minor.

Homicide investigators are still looking into this incident.

Cincinnati Public Schools released the following statement:

“We are devastated by this tragedy. Our mental health support teams are actively supporting our school community at this time. We also have additional crisis teams in place to support our students and staff, if needed.”

Call 513-352-3040 if you have any information.
