KNOXVILLE, Tennessee – There is shocking video coming from Tennessee Thursday night in a bizarre crime.
Katie Nichols told a news crew she had to act quickly because her mother was in a satanic cult and was putting curses on her and her daughter.
"When I left, she was still breathing,” said Nichols. “I stabbed her three times and she should have died. She was still breathing. I don't know what happened to her afterwards or where they took her, but she was the Antichrist. She did not die."
The mother survived the attack. Investigators said the case is even more bizarre because Nichols has no criminal history.
Neighbors said Nichols has emotional problems and they hope she gets the help she needs.
