A Tennessee woman admitted on camera to stabbing her mother three times.
The 61-year-old victim was reportedly stabbed in the neck, chest and
belly before dawn Tuesday, February 18, 2014. It happened in the
victim’s apartment in Knoxville, Tennessee.
Hours after the victim was found, a WVLT news crew
was interviewing the victim’s friend and neighbor on camera when the
victim’s daughter, 31-year-old Katie Nichols, arrived and approached
them. Nichols told the news crew her version of what happened.
“The satanic cult in this city has been casting satanic spells on me
for three, four days. I’m exhausted. I came home and found out my mom
was the ringleader and was trying to kill my daughter,” Nichols said.
Nichols claimed there were spells and satanic symbols, disguised as
knick-knacks, all over her mother’s home. She said she stabbed her
mother three times, “and she should have died,” but the woman was still
breathing when Nichols took her own young daughter and left after the
Nichols said she took her daughter to a rural location to wait for a
sign that it was safe to come back. She said she had not slept in four
days because “They were trying to kill me with curses and if I had
slept, I might have died.”
“All of the satanic cult has been rounded up and killed now,” Nichols said.
The victim was last known to be hospitalized in intensive care after undergoing surgery.
Nichols was charged with attempted first-degree murder and aggravated
kidnapping. She was held in the Knox County, Tennessee Jail.
