El Paso, TX (The Weekly Vice) - Jennifer Alvarado, a 25-year-old Texas woman, was jailed Thursday after she allegedly stabbed her mother a dozen times because she believed her mother was "possessed by the devil."
According to El Paso police, officers were dispatched Tuesday at 9:45 p.m. after neighbors called to report a stabbing. Police arrived on the scene to find Alvarado walking the neighborhood without any clothes on and covered with blood.
Responding officers discovered her mother, 56-year-old Barbara Herrera, laying on the ground outside their home. She was covered with blood from 12 stab wounds, according to the arrest affidavit.
Investigators say Alvarado used a kitchen knife to stab her mother in the face, breasts, abdomen, back and shoulder areas.
Herrera was taken to University Medical Center of El Paso where she is listed in serious but stable condition.
Neighbors told police they saw the two women struggling and heard Alvarado shouting that she was going to kill her mother because she was evil and possessed by the devil.
Alvarado was booked into the El Paso County Jail and charged with suspicion of attempted murder. Her bond has been set at $200,000.
