Otty Sanchez, 33, is charged with capital murder in the death of her infant son, Scott Wesley Buchholtz-Sanchez. Sanchez is recovering from her wounds at a hospital, and is being held on $1 million bail.
San Antonio Police Chief William McManus said the early Sunday morning attack happened just a week after the child’s father moved out. The child’s aunt and two cousins, ages 5 and 7, were in the house, but there were not harmed.
Police Chief McManus said Sanchez ate the child’s brain and some other body parts. She also tore his face off, chewed off three of his toes and decapitated the infant before stabbing herself.
“It’s too heinous for me to describe it any further,” McManus said.
Police were called to Sanchez’s house at about 5 a.m. Sunday where they found her sitting on the couch “screaming that she killed her baby,” police spokesman Joe Rios said. They found the boy’s body in a bedroom.
Police said Sanchez said the devil told her to kill her son.
“It was a spontaneous utterance,” McManus said. “She said she was hearing voices.”
Sanchez does not yet have a lawyer, police said, and was hospitalized in San Antonio. The police declined to identify other family members.
Neighbor Luis Yanez said everyone on the street was appalled by the news.
“Why would you do that to your baby?” said Yanez, 23, a tire technician. “It brings chills to you. They can’t defend themselves.”
