A Lufkin woman who admittedly held a knife to her 11-month old baby’s throat and smeared menstrual blood on her face has lost the right to see both of her children, a judge ruled during a Tuesday morning custody hearing.

Casey Olford appeared before County-Court-at-Law No. 1 Judge Bob Inselmann alongside her attorney, Al Charanza. Her mother, Melissa Holman, also appeared with her own attorney, John Weismuller, in hopes of being granted custody of baby Kaylee and her 3-year-old brother, Kayden.
