Texas police: Mother says devil made her kill her son

Sunday, July 26, 2009 | 6:50 p.m. CDT

SAN ANTONIO — Police said they found a 3 1/2-week-old infant stabbed and decapitated in a Texas home and his mother screaming that she killed her son after the devil told her to do it.

San Antonio police said 33-year-old Otty Sanchez was taken to a local hospital with self-inflicted stab wounds to her chest and stomach. Police spokesman Joe Rios said Otty will be charged with capital murder.

Two other children found unharmed at the home were taken by social service workers. Rios said a kitchen knife and two swords were recovered from the home.

Rios said police were called around 5 a.m. Sunday and found Otty on the couch, "screaming that she killed her baby," whom police identified as Scott Wesley Buchholtz-Sanchez. Rios said she told police that she was hearing voices.
