A TikTok account has been suspended after it was believed to have been that of a 14-year-old girl accused of murdering her disabled sister.

Claire Miller allegedly confessed to police in the US she'd fatally stabbed her 19-year-old sister, Helen Miller, who had cerebral palsy last Monday, Insider reported.

Her alleged TikTok account has since been shut down after its last video began to go viral on the platform.

While the contents of the video are unclear, it is believed she was complaining about her father. Her family featured heavily in her recent videos.

According to Insider, the account had about 32,000 followers while her final video had close to five million views.

The comments section was reportedly awash with comments from users discussing her alleged crime.

TikTok, who did not confirm the account was Miller's, said the account had violated its community guidelines for "promoting or engaging violence".

Manheim Township Police Department in Pennsylvania received a 911 call shortly after 1am last Monday and admitted to stabbing her sister, according to the Lancaster County District Attorney's Office.

Police were guided to a bedroom at their family home by Miller where her injured sister was located.

An arrest affidavit seen by Insider said Miller repeatedly told police: "I stabbed by sister."

Emergency services were unable to save the sister who had been stabbed in the neck.

The sisters' parents were asleep at the time of the alleged murder.

Miller, who was charged with homicide and will be charged as an adult, remains in custody.
