Woman Accused Of Beheading Infant, Held On $1M Bail

A Texas woman accused of decapitating her 3 1/2-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-threatening.

    What the hell? I seriously doubt she had post-partum because that is just too SICK. She deserves to die a slow horrible death, regardless of her mental state.

    Interesting enough the posts I had posted are gone now. I had severe depression after the birth of my child. All I had stated was that with the right meds she will be in her own private hell when the meds get in her system. I would like a reply as to why my posts were removed.

    This is a prime example of why women should have to undergo psychiatric counseling before laving a hospital with a baby....
