"Devil Made Me Do It" Says Mom Who Killed Infant

A Texas woman accused of decapitating her 31/2-week-old son has been charged with capital murder and is being held on $1 million bail.

Otty Sanchez has not appeared in court or been arraigned on the charges.

Police say officers were called to the 33-year-old Sanchez's home in San Antonio early Sunday and found her sitting on her couch screaming that she had killed her son at the devil's request.

They found the mutilated body of Scott Wesley Buchholtz-Sanchez in a bedroom. Two other children were found unharmed in the home.

Investigators removed a sword, machete and knife from the home.

Sanchez was hospitalized with self-inflicted stab wounds to her chest and stomach. Investigators don't believe the wounds are life

    She apparently ate some of her son's brain, three toes, cut off his face, and other horrible stuff. There is a more informative story on Foxnews.com under the crime section.

    She does NOT deserve a trail.
