MILWAUKEE (AP) –  A 13-year-old Milwaukee girl accused of fatally stabbing her step-grandfather because he poured her milk down a drain is being held on $150,000 cash bond.

The girl appeared Tuesday in Milwaukee County Children’s Court. She is accused of stabbing 48-year-old Robert A. Moon in the neck on Saturday after he allegedly poured out milk that she wanted for her cereal.

Public defender Joy Sherard says there’s a family history that has required intervention from county officials, but declined to elaborate.

The Associated Press previously released the girl’s name but is no longer doing so after Judicial Court Commissioner Kevin Costello banned the media from identifying her. Costello says he wants to protect her privacy because the case may get waived back to juvenile court.
