Son charged in mother's stabbing death

LAKEWOOD, OH (WOIO) - Lakewood police say a woman was stabbed to death Friday morning. It happened at a home in the 1400 block of Lakeland Avenue near Detroit Avenue.

Police say they received a 911 hang-up call around 3:15 a.m. They called back and a woman said she was sleeping and it must have been a mistake.

Around 3:30 a.m. another 911 call was made. The woman said her son stabbed himself and he was bleeding to death. As the dispatcher asked more questions, there was a disturbance where the woman and man shouted, and the call ended.

When police arrived, 56-year-old Kathleen Meany was found on the kitchen floor with a stab wound to the chest. She was transported to Fairview Hospital, where she later died.

Her 21-year-old son, Sean White, was found on the second floor with a stab wound to the torso. He was arrested and taken to MetroHealth Medical Center, where he is currently in stable condition.

No one else was found in the home.

White has been charged with murder. An investigation into the homicide continues.
