A 37-year-old Florida woman was pictured smiling at family members in court, after stabbing her father 69 times.
The woman identified as Amber Maltese pleaded guilty to second-degree murder of her 60-year-old father Alfred Megathlin.
She used a knife, an arrow and a picture frame to carry out the chilling attack on her dad before leaving her own signature in a bloody hand print on the wall.
According to Brevard County court documents the killing took place in February 2015 at her father’s Melbourne home and after killing her dad she jumped in a car wearing only underwear and intentionally rammed a police car while attempting to flee the crime scene.
Maltese eventually surrendered to police after leading police on a long car chase.
Maltese was charged with felony and aggravated fleeing, attempting to elude, driving under the influence and driving with a suspended license at the time of the crash and will now face 30 years behind bars.
