According to a video report by GeoBeats, a woman from Knoxville, Tennessee admitted to stabbing her own mother while she was talking to a local news station about the crime. The woman, Katie Nichols, 31, was a suspect in the case from the beginning. Nichols was no where to be found when police arrived on the scene but when a local news station arrived, Nichols flagged them down from her car. Believe it or not, she confessed to the whole thing on camera.
Nichols started talking about "Satanic spells" being cast on her and that her mom was the "ringleader." Nichols said that she had no other choice -- she says she "had to act" because her mother was "putting curses" on her and her family.
Just after the confession Katie Nichols was handcuffed and taken away by police. She has been charged with attempted first degree murder and aggravated kidnapping. Nichols' 61-year-old mother is in the ICU.
