Decapitated baby is found in home

July 27, 2009|Times Wire Reports

Police said they found a 3 1/2 -week-old infant stabbed and decapitated in a San Antonio home and his mother screaming that the devil told her to do it.

Otty Sanchez, 33, was hospitalized in critical condition with self-inflicted stab wounds to her chest and stomach, said San Antonio police spokesman Joe Rios. Investigators took a sword, a machete and a kitchen knife from the home.

Officers also found two children unharmed there.

Rios said that when police arrived, Sanchez was sitting on the couch "screaming that she killed her baby," whom police identified as Scott Wesley Buchholtz-Sanchez.

Sanchez will be charged with capital murder, Rios said.
