Woman Stabs Husband, Explains To South Carolina Cops That Victim Was "Satan's Spawn"

A woman arrested for stabbing her husband in the stomach explained to South Carolina cops that, “Jesus and Mary told me to kill him because he is Satan’s spawn!”

Despite that explanation, Tammi Estep, 36, was charged with the attempted murder of her 46-year-old spouse, who underwent surgery following the attack Friday morning.

According to a Horry County Police Department report, Estep told officers that she “was sent to save the world!” The stabbing occurred in the home Estep shares with her husband and two sons, both of whom were present during the incident.

Pictured in the adjacent mug shot, Estep is being held in the county jail in advance of a bond hearing.
