A Canton teenager accused of stabbing her cousin to death over the weekend told police that the pair smoked 'suspected marijuana' prior to the stabbing, according to a search warrant. 

Olivia Smith, 18, is charged with felony murder in the death of her step-cousin Abbey Hebert, 17.

Officers responded to Blowing Wind Court in Acworth at about 8:50 a.m. Saturday and found Hebert dead on the front yard of her home. Hebert's parents were not at home at the time, police said. Smith, a cousin of Hebert by marriage, admitted to police that she had stabbed Hebert, the warrant said. She told police she was under the influence of an unknown drug, possibly marijuana, according to the warrant.

The warrant also states the following:

In the early morning hours, the 2 girls went to Chick-fil-A nearby. Upon their return to Abbey's house, they went inside, dispersed the food to other occupants, who left the home shortly thereafter, and on Olivia's admittance both smoked suspected marijuana outside the home, on the back porch.
Olivia and Abbey came back inside and began eating their food at the kitchen table. An argument ensued between the 2 girls and a physical fight broke out.
Olivia grabbed a knife out of the butcher block in the kitchen area and stabbed Abbey. Abbey fled out the front door of the residence, with Olivia giving chase. Abbey fell between the property of her home and 3113 Blowing Wind Court.
As witnessed by a person walking by, Olivia is seen on top of Abbey, stabbing her numerous times. Olivia admits to this witness that she stabbed Abbey.

Sgt. Dana Pierce of the Cobb County Police Department said investigators were working to establish a motive in the case. He cautioned that much of what's being circulated on social media is not true.
