Killed His Twin Sister – Charged

During a court hearing Thursday morning, a judge set Benjamin’s bond at $ 100,000, but he was not present at the trial because he is in the mental health unit.

A prosecutor revealed that Benjamin admitted to stabbing Meghan, but told officers that he believed he was sleeping or dreaming at the time, and only realized what had happened when he pulled the knife from the twin’s neck.

“The defendant stated that after realizing that he was not dreaming, he removed the knife and placed it next to the complainant, turned on the bedroom light, and applied pressure to the wound with a pillow,” a prosecutor claimed, according to Click2Houston.

Benjamin then called 911 to report the stabbing, and the operator instructed him to perform CPR on his sister until paramedics arrived.

While on the call with the emergency dispatcher, the teen alerted his parents, who woke up and ran to Meghan’s room to find his son performing CPR on his daughter.

According to prosecutors, parents can be heard screaming and crying in the background.

In court Thursday, attorneys said Benjamin had no history of sleep disorders and had not used drugs or alcohol.

Authorities said the 17-year-old suspect will stand trial for murder as an adult.

Benjamin and Meghan Elliott attended Cypress Park High School, and neighbors recalled seeing them walk to and from the bus stop together, 13WMAZ reported.

Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez testified Wednesday that deputies were dispatched to an address in the 4100 block of Brown Meadow Court in Katy at 4.45 a.m. and they found Benjamin on top of his sister performing CPR on his bed.

Meghan was pronounced dead at the scene by multiple stab wounds to her neck.

During a press conference, Sgt. Greg Pinkins of the Sheriff’s Office Homicide Division revealed that Benjamin was the one who made the 911 call, summoning officers to the scene.

Responding officers found the teenage suspect stabbed performing CPR on his twin sister in an attempt to save his life, ABC13 reported.

The brothers’ parents were home at the time of the violent incident but were said to be asleep.

Officers recovered a knife at the scene of the attack but had to obtain a search warrant to search for additional evidence inside the family home because the twins’ parents refused to let anyone in.

Pinkens said no motive has been disclosed, according to KHOU11.

According to authorities, there had been a pre-service call at the home at Brown Meadow Court due to an unspecified family disturbance.
