Two other victims, a 19-year-old woman (the baby's mother, Alexia Dailey) and her 22-year-old boyfriend, Christopher Hamilton continue to receive treatment at the hospital.

A 20-year-old man remains in custody for the crime.  Charges are expected to be filed in the coming days.

The stabbing incident happened in a duplex near 39th and Clybourn around 8:30 a.m. last Friday.

Police say Kairii Dailey was stabbed and died as she was laying in her crib -- allegedly by her father. He's accused of stabbing three others, including the baby's mother, Alexia Dailey. Alexia Dailey's family tells FOX6 News she has already had extensive surgery. She continues to recover at Froedtert Hospital.

The family has established a account to raise money for Alexia Dailey's medical expenses, and Kairii Dailey's funeral services. Nearly $2,000 has been raised in two days.

Alexia Dailey's family didn't want to talk with FOX6 News on camera, but they did release a statement:

"We appreciate the outpouring of support and concern we've been receiving. We ask for privacy as we focus on Lexi getting well, and as we begin the recovery process. Please continue to keep our family in your thoughts and prayers."

Another family in need of prayers and support is that of Paul Kucharczyk. Alexia Dailey's grandfather says Kucharczyk was Alexia Dailey's Godfather -- and last Friday morning, the family says he was a hero. Dailey's grandfather says his actions, and that of Alexia Dailey's current boyfriend, Christopher Hamilton saved the young mother's life.

Alexia Dailey's family acknowledges it is a life that's forever changed, and say as strong as she is, she'll need help and support as she moves forward -- especially as she lays her five-month-old daughter to rest.

Christopher Hamilton's family tells FOX6 News he could be released from the hospital as soon as Monday, January 26th -- but he faces permanent disability in his hands as a result of his injuries. His family has established a account in his honor.

Again -- charges are expected against the 20-year-old suspect in the coming days.

    I have to agree with you. Too many people having kids who really can’t afford to. A parent should always have adequate means to support a child which includes having insurance for the child incase a tragedy would occur. Nothing wrong with a person needing help once in a while,but it shouldn’t be expected.

    • lisa

      You know I’m sorry but one of the people that had past away trying to protect them was a 39 year old male. This pos left a mother childless and 2 children fatherless. Have some compaction for the families my 9 year old daughter did not choose to loose a father and never see him again

  • sue

    I am the mother of one of the victims. My husband and I are on limited income and I am disabled. You never expect that you should have to bury one of your children, no matter how old they are, and don’t always have money to cover expenses like that. You need to think with your heart instead of your mouth and have compassion for others.

    • imthatgirlwi

      So before there was gofundme, what did people do to pay for these things when they happened? Now suddenly everyone needs to raise 10k, 25k, etc for all types of costs related to a tragedy. Oh and the last thing I would do in this situation is be online on the comment boards of the news websites and spend time defending myself to strangers.

      • imthatgirlwi

        I can empathize, its a terrible situation . But does that means I am not entitled to express my opinion about the overuse of gofundme? It is a public news reporting website last time I checked.

      • Perplexed

        Perhaps it is YOU that should not go on comment boards to show the world what an insensitive, soul lacking human being you are? There are family members here who are grieving and trying to find some closure and one is a child of one of the victims. What the hell is wrong with you? How does it feel to have people not care about your feelings and insult you? Think, if you possibly can!

      • Val

        No, you don’t empathize. If you did, you wouldn’t have said “but” and then continued to offer your *very* unsolicited opinion.

        I bet you’re one of those folks who says “I’m sorry, but” a lot too. You’re not sorry and you don’t empathize. You just like the sound of your own “hard opinion” flapping out there in the breeze.

    • Priscilla

      I too have a spouse on disability but I have life insurance for both of my children. It costs me $10.02 a month for $15,000 of coverage-enough to give them a funeral with diginity!

  • shauna kucharczyk

    i miss my daddy very much he did all he could and in the prosses lost is wonderful life so please if ur going to comment on this think be fore you speak

    • Perplexed

      Shauna, I am very sorry for your loss. Don’t let people like this tell you how to grieve or what to do. That insensitive person most likely couldn’t fathom what you are dealing with right now and she is very rude. Hugs and condolences. Be strong.

    • Val

      But seriously, a true lack of empathy and disregard for others and their feelings. You do realize those are symptoms of a psychopath, right? Might wanna get that seen to.

  • Val

    Let me get this straight – Lives were lost, including that of a 5 month old baby and folks come on here to pontificate about how people “shouldn’t use Gofundme”, chastise the victims families for not having insurance, and then bloviate about when or how people should or shouldn’t have children?? What the hell is wrong with this picture? Yes you can have an opinion, but have you ever heard of the right place and the right time? Classless. Just classless.

    OF COURSE the grieving families are going to read comments about their family member’s death! You’re going to insult them for doing that, too? Yes, they are going to see what people say about their loved one or the situation. They are looking something, ANYTHING right now to help give them comfort. Even a kind word from a stranger.

    Just because you are on the internet doesn’t mean you should be rude. Seriously – Just because “you can” do something doesn’t mean you should.
