A Tennessee woman was arrested Tuesday after she told a local news television crew that she stabbed her mother because she was “the antichrist” and that she was the ringleader of a satanic cult.

“When I left, she was still breathing,” 31-year old Katie Nichols told Knoxville’s WVLT, “I stabbed her three times, and she should have died… she was the antichrist, she did not die.”

The local news television crew got Nichols’s confession on camera after she returned to the crime scene Tuesday. Police say Nichols stabbed Laurie Nichols, 61, multiple times before fleeing with her young daughter.

Nichols is currently in jail on charges of attempted first-degree murder and attempted kidnapping, the Huffington Post reports.
