A Texas woman decapitated her 25-day-old baby and ate pieces of her body after claiming she “heard voices” early Monday morning.
Authorities found 33-year-old Otty Sanchez with a self-inflicted stab wound lying on the floor of her home, bleeding, and screaming,“I killed my baby, I want to die.”
Sanchez is currently in the hospital and has been charged with capital murder.
Police said the mother might be suffering from mental illness, as she claimed to be hearing voices which told her to eat and kill the baby.
Sanchez was living with her mother and sister who helped care for her child.
A week earlier she had separated from her baby’s father.
