A 21-year-old woman has been charged with the murder of her 5-month old son after the baby was found stabbed to death inside a Chicago motel Thursday morning.

Kimberlynn Bolanos faces one count of first-degree murder in the death of her infant son, Isaac, and remains hospitalized with wounds to her abdomen, the Tribune reports. Sources tell the Sun-Times Bolanos possibly attempted a murder-suicide.

Around 10:30 a.m., the infant was found dead at the scene while the mother was found injured inside a first-floor room of the Diplomat Motel in the 5200 block of North Lincoln Avenue in the city's Lincoln Square neighborhood, CBS Chicago reports.

Alex Ramirez was surprised when he arrived for work at the motel to paint the exterior. Ramirez told the Sun-Times he saw the woman and her child just the day before. “She seemed happy,” he said.

A front desk clerk at the Diplomat who asked to remain anonymous told DNAinfo Chicago a man approached her after 10 a.m. this morning and asked her to alert police.

"Call the police. The lady killed my son, the lady killed my son," the clerk said the man shouted. The couple had reportedly checked into the motel two days earlier.
