BOSTON — A 5-year-old girl who was found wandering alone in Massachusetts Wednesday morning led police to a grisly scene at her house, where investigators found her mother dead and her father stabbed, authorities said.

Cops spotted the little girl on the side of a busy road all alone, according to a post on the Grafton Police Department’s Facebook page.

The girl said, “mommy is sick” and “mommy is sleeping,”

When officers took her home, they found dad on the kitchen floor with what appeared to be a knife in his neck. He was still alive and clutching the knife.

No word on his condition. But cops say he could face murder charges in the death of his wife.
