A 35-year-old woman from Missouri has been charged after she killed her 6-year-old son and her dog as ‘she thought the devil was coming to get her’.
According to reports, Tasha Haefs called 911 and told the dispatcher that the devil was trying to attack her.
Police arrived at her home in Kansas City and found blood on the front steps and heard the mother singing.
Haefs refused to open the door and the louder the police knocked, the louder she sang.
One of the officers looked through a window and saw a decapitated head. That’s when police forced their way inside and found Haefs with blood on her feet and legs.
“The female suspect had apparent blood on her person and two knives with apparent blood on them were observed in plain view throughout the residence,” the criminal complaint stated.
Police also said that the woman had scratches and cuts on both of her hands, and also a puncture wound to her right thigh, according to Fox4kc.com.
Officers found the body of the little boy in the kitchen and the lifeless body of the dog in the basement.
Haefs “admitted to killing the victim in the bathtub and decapitating the victim,” the complaint stated.
The woman was charged with first-degree murder, reports said.
In a statement released after filing charges, Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker said: “The community now knows some of the terrible details of the death of this 6-year-old child. It takes our breath away.
“My office, as it always has, pledges to do everything in its power to bring justice in this young boy’s murder. We will not shrink from our responsibility.
“It’s difficult to imagine the grief for this boy’s family. For the child’s classmates. His friends. Neighbors. The first responders who went to this crime scene. I expect it leaves us not knowing what to do.”
She added: “We might look at our loved ones today and give some thanks to God or even say a prayer. Thank you, my child is safe today. But we want everyone’s children to be safe.”
