The San Antonio woman accused of decapitating her 3½-week-old son was screaming that she didn't mean to kill her child after her sister made the gruesome discovery and called police.

The four-minute 911 call San Antonio police released Wednesday ends with mother Otty Sanchez crying, "I love him. I didn't mean to do it. He told me to," while her sister pleads with the 911 operator for an ambulance to come to the house.

Priscilla Sanchez tells a dispatcher that her sister has stabbed herself in the heart and stomach and that "there is blood all over the bed."

Authorities say Otty Sanchez told them the devil made her kill Scott Wesley Buchholz-Sanchez early Sunday.

Otty Sanchez is charged with capital murder and being held on $1
million bond.
