Not Guilty by reason of Insanity Verdict for Mother who decapitated and ate child’s brain

A Texas woman who decapitated her 3 week old baby before eating his brain will not spend any time in jail after being found not guilty in court.

34-year-old Otty Sanchez was found not guilty by reason of insanity in the death of baby Scott Wesley Buchholz-Sanchez and prosecutors accepted a plea deal from the woman who claimed that the devil made her kill her child.

As previously reported when police arrived at the scene they found the baby in a bedroom with three of his toes chewed off, his face torn away, his head severed and brain ripped out.

Police say Sanchez ate the boy’s toes and part of his brain before stabbing herself in the chest and slashing part of her throat.

In a 911 call made by Sanchez’s sister, the woman can be heard screaming in the background:

“I didn’t wanna do it! He told me to!”

Sanchez charged with capital murder and found competent to stand trial.

The Associated Press reports however that after three examinations by separate doctors, she was determined to be legally insane, forcing the court to accept her plea.
Sanchez will be committed to a mental hospital before a court determines if she is no longer a danger to herself or anyone else.

She was previously prescribed the antidepressant Citalopram after the birth of her child but had only taken it the day before killing her son. The drugs do not take effect for a few weeks.

County District Attorney Susan Reed says Sanchez repeatedly sought help for her illness but did not receive the proper care.

The woman reported hearing voices a week before the fatal attack and was diagnosed with postpartum psychosis.

2009 News Report:

The scene was so gruesome investigators could barely speak: A 3 1/2-week-old boy lay dismembered in the bedroom of a single-story house, three of his tiny toes chewed off, his face torn away, his head severed and his brains ripped out.

“At this particular scene you could have heard a pin drop,” San Antonio Police Chief William McManus said Monday. “No one was speaking. It was about as somber as it could have been.”

Officers called to the home early Sunday found the boy’s mother, Otty Sanchez, sitting on the couch with a self-inflicted wound to her chest and her throat partially slashed, screaming “I killed my baby! I killed my baby!” police said. She told officers the devil made her do it, police said.

Sanchez, 33, apparently ate the child’s brain and some other body parts before stabbing herself, McManus said.

“It’s too heinous for me to describe it any further,” McManus told reporters.

Sanchez is charged with capital murder in the death of her son, Scott Wesley Buccholtz-Sanchez. She was being treated Monday at a hospital, and was being held on $1 million bail.

‘In and out’ of psychiatric ward

The slaying occurred a week after the child’s father moved out, McManus said. Otty Sanchez’s sister and her sister’s two children, ages 5 and 7, were in the house, but none were harmed.

Police said Sanchez did not have an attorney, and they declined to identify family members.
