A Texas woman accused of decapitating her 3 1/2-week-old son screamed that she didn't mean to kill her child after her sister made the gruesome discovery and called police.

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

Priscilla Sanchez also tells a dispatcher during the call that her sister 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.
