WILLOUGHBY, OH (WOIO) -

The 18-year-old teenager accused of stabbing and killing her foster mom appeared in Willoughby Muni Court Wednesday afternoon.

Sabrina Zunich had a preliminary hearing. The judge found enough evidence to bind her case over to the Lake County grand jury. Bond remains $750,000.

Willoughby Hills Police say Zunich stabbed her foster mom inside their home last Friday morning. Lisa Knoefel was found in the first floor master bedroom with multiple stab wounds. Knoefel was pronounced dead on the scene.

Zunich was found covered in blood and holding a knife.

Knoefel's 13-year-old daughter was the one who called 911.
