The woman pulled out her pocket knife at her home in Cleveland and stabbed her boyfriend, 31, five times in the chest and once in the head.
When the mother called the police to the scene, she said she had found her boyfriend trying to touch her daughter and stabbed him, Cleveland.com report.
In an interview with police, the mother, who along with the boyfriend cannot be named, said she was heading to bed early on Tuesday morning when she saw her boyfriend naked on top of her daughter.

Both mother and daughter sustained cuts to their hands in the incident.
The 12-year-old girl told police that her mother’s boyfriend fondled her under her clothes, took off her pants and stripped off his own clothes.
He then told her, ‘This is what it is like in the real world when you have a boyfriend’, before sexually assaulting her, according to police reports.
