The office also corrected a chronology of the attack it
initially released Tuesday night.





It said Wednesday that the younger woman was being stabbed numerous times in her upper body with a 12-inch butcher knife when her mother came to her aid and also was stabbed.

Autopsy results determined that Po Lin Wan bled to death, while her daughter died from being stabbed in the heart. A prosecutor’s office news release Tuesday night had reversed their causes of death.

Antoinette Pelzer is charged with murder and is being held on $1.5 million bail. Her aunt says Pelzer has been homeless and mentally ill for years. Pelzer had been living in an Ohio shelter until December, when
her mother brought her back to Philadelphia, said Pelzer’s aunt Nadine King, also of Philadelphia.

The attacks took place a half a block away from a hospital trauma center, and a police officer who saw the stabbings in progress arrested Pelzer.
