Taheerah Ahmad, 39, was arrested Tuesday after tying up her children and stabbing her 11-year-old daughter 70 times
The family of a Tulsa woman charged with stabbing her 11-year-old daughter 70 times, say she snapped after losing her job and being barred from attending her son's graduation.
Taheerah Ahmad, 39, was arrested in downtown Tulsa on Tuesday after she was on the run from police.
Ahmad allegedly bound and gagged her three daughters by duct taping their hands and stuffing socks in their mouths.
She also stabbed her 11-year-old daughter 50 to 70 times, hit her in the head with a pickaxe, and set the home on fire on Monday in her breakdown.
One of the children, a nine-year-old girl, escaped to a nearby home where she asked for help.
'She was normal Friday, Saturday she snapped, Sunday she was evil,' Ahmad's aunt, Debrecka Fields, told KHRH-TV.
'She thought herself into a nervous breakdown,' she said.
Her family reveal that she suffered a break down this past weekend after recently losing her job and being barred her son's graduation, Ahmad above after she was arrested Tuesday

Her family said she seemed fine Friday and turned evil on Sunday. She attacked her children on Monday, an aunt pictured above
Fields said alarm was raised when her niece ran out of the house towards her.
'My little niece came running up the driveway, barefoot in hysterics saying "auntie, auntie mommy killed Sadiya'," another aunt Barbara Alsharif said.
When she entered the home she found the fire and one of the girls on the ground.
'Seeing that girl lay there like she had just been through a war-torn country was not something that we see at home,' she said.
Ahmad cracked after recently losing her job. Soon afterwards she shot her dog and chickens.
She was left heartbroken after her mother, who cares for her two sons believed to be in their late teens to early 20s, prevented Ahmad from seeing one of them graduate on Saturday.
That led her to a breaking point come Sunday, Mother's day.
The mother remains booked in Tulsa County Jail on complaints of arson, child abuse and assault and battery with the intent to kill.
Officer Jeanne MacKenzie says the 11-year-old girl is in 'very critical' condition following the stabbing.

Ahmad allegedly set her kitchen on fire after stabbing her eldest daughter. She then went on the run with her youngest child
Taheerah Ahmad, 39, was arrested Tuesday afternoon and questioned by police after she was found with her seven-year-old daughter in Tulsa, Oklahoma
The mother (left) had gone on the run with her seven-year-old daughter Hafsa Hayle (right) earlier on Tuesday morning, prompting police to issue an Amber Alert
She has also declined to say where the mother had worked.
A police report says one of the daughters told officers they were held hostage in their room without food or water a week before the attack took place.
Ahmad told officers the girls were reading and she became upset 'because of the way they were reading and looking at her.'
It was not clear what the girls were reading, MacKenzie said.
'(Ahmad) said that they don't normally read and the fact that they were reading told her that they were up to no good,' MacKenzie said.
When police arrived to the scene they found the 11-year-old girl inside with the kitchen on fire. Footage shot by Fox23 shows fire crews and police inspecting the one-story family home.
However Ahmad had already fled with her youngest daughter, seven-year-old Hafsa Hayle .
The injured girl remains in a critical condition in hospital and authorities say she was stabbed so many times they were unable to count the exact number of wounds.
Police said she was still unconscious and that her condition was 'very severe.'
The mother and daughter were found after two women spotted a vehicle similar to what police described in an Amber Alert issued earlier on Tuesday.
Ahmad is currently being questioned by the Tulsa Police Department.
Police had initially said it was unclear where Ahmad may have been headed but that she had lived in Tennessee and Texas in the past.
Ahmad may be suffering from mental health or drug related issues, according to police.
