RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Richmond police have identified the woman killed in a deadly triple stabbing as 50-year-old Vivian Robinson.

"This is going to be my biggest challenge because I need to learn to forgive the person that killed my mama," said Rameka Morris, Robinson's daughter.

It happened around 11:50 p.m. Saturday, in the 3300 block of North Avenue. Police received a call for an argument. When officers arrived on the scene, they found a man and three women. Police say the three women had stab wounds.

"I don't understand how a man can do this to a woman, not just one, but three," said Morris. "That was my mom, my sister, and my aunt."

Morris says her aunt and sister were taken to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Robinson was pronounced dead at the scene.

"She was a hard worker, and she got grandbabies that love her so much," Morris explained. "She was a good person. She was a caretaker for her husband."

Morris says her mother's death has left her in shock because hours before, their family had been together celebrating a college graduation.

"It's time for my family to come together and learn from this," she said.

Richmond police say detectives have opened a death investigation and are consulting with the Commonwealth's Attorney's Office to determine possible charges.
