A North Texas mother is behind bars after allegedly killing her 8-year-old son because “demons told her to sacrifice her son,” according to KTVT-TV.
Irving police officers found the boy dead in the 2600 block of Peach Tree Lane on Sunday, according to the police department. How he was killed was not immediately clear.
By Monday, detectives pegged the boy’s mother – Tisha Sanchez – as the killer, police said. She told her sister about the alleged demonic intervention, according to the TV station.
Detectives charged Sanchez with capital murder in her son’s death. She’s being held on a $2 million bond.
