Boy admits ‘hacking sister open’

`A teenager has admitted trying to kill his 10-year-old sister by “hacking her open” because she annoyed him by waking him up when she went to the toilet.

The 17-year-old launched a frenzied knife attack on the girl at their home.

Exeter Crown Court heard how the boy said to police: “Come on, come on, I have hacked her open, I was bored,” while hitting a car with a metal spade.

The boy has been remanded to a local psychiatric unit while his condition is assessed before he is sentenced.’
