    A Hialeah woman is facing charges after police say she fatally stabbed another woman in the back, a woman who neighbors said was her own grandmother.

    Tabitha Nicole Torres, 29, was arrested Monday on a first-degree murder charge in the stabbing that happened at a home in the 3800 block of W. 3rd Court, an arrest report said.

    According to the report, Torres got into an argument with a man and began accusing him of raping her daughter before she walked away from him.

    Prosecutors said Torres started thinking of ways she could get revenge on the man, and decided to stab his mother. Torres then went into the kitchen where the woman was washing dishes, grabbed a knife and stabbed her multiple times in the back, prosecutors said.
