"Demons Made Me Do It" Mother Found Not Guilty

A Texas woman who said she was possessed by demons has been found not guilty by reason of insanity in the stabbings of her sons.

Both boys survived the attack at their San Antonio home.

Maria Alsareinye was ordered Tuesday to undergo observation at a state mental facility. After 30 days a judge will decide if the 50-year-old woman should be held at a mental facility for the rest of her life.

Alsareinye was arrested in January 2007 after her 10-year-old son flagged down a motorist.

The boy was bleeding from stab wounds to his chest, neck and back, and he led the motorist to his house where Alsareinye was stabbing his 12-year-old brother in the back.

A psychologist determined she was unaware of her conduct because of mental illness.
