SAN ANTONIO (AP) - The father of a newborn baby who was allegedly mutilated, killed and cannibalized by his mother says he wants to see her executed for her crimes.
Scott W. Buchholtz told The Associated Press on Tuesday that Otty Sanchez, the mother of 3½-week-old Scotty Wesley Buchholtz-Sanchez, seemed fine in the days before the killing even though she had told him she had been diagnosed with postpartum depression and was going to be admitted to a hospital for depression.
Relatives of Sanchez say she had been diagnosed with schizophrenia and postpartum psychosis. Buchholtz says he, too, has been diagnosed with schizophrenia.
Sanchez has been charged with capital murder and is being held on $1 million bail. She is recovering from self-inflicted stab wounds at a hospital.
