BOISE -- (KIVI) -- One child has died following a knife attack Saturday night at a Boise apartment complex.

The Boise Police Department says the three-year-old victim who was flown to Utah for treatment of her injuries she received in Saturday night’s attack has died. “It is with deep sorrow we share the news that she has passed away today. We will not be releasing her name until additional notifications have been made,” a BPD news release said Monday.

“Of the other eight victims, one child has been treated and released from the hospital. Seven victims remain in the hospital, many with serious or critical injuries,” the release added.

The Boise Police investigation into the suspect, Timmy Kinner, remains ongoing.

Kinner, from Los Angeles, was arrested Saturday night and booked into the Ada County Jail on nine felony charges of aggravated battery and six felony charges of injury to a child.

Kinner made his initial court appearance in Ada County Monday afternoon, brought into court handcuffed and in a wheelchair for security reasons.

Kinner was described as homeless, with no ties to the Boise community. Officials said he threatened Ada County Jail staff and himself while incarcerated.

Witnesses describe Kinner’s demeanor as “argumentative” in court.

When Kinner was asked by the court if he understood the charges against him, including the new charge of first-degree murder, he told the court, “No. No, sir.”

The judge asked, “What don't you understand?”

“I don’t understand none of this, sir," Kinner responded.
