Mom Accused of Chaining Up, Stabbing Son ‘Heard Voices’

A Lake Wales, Fla., mother is charged with attempted murder for an alleged Tuesday stabbing attack that left her 7-year-old son riddled with wounds. Investigators say Maisa Alvarez, 42, confessed in an interview that she heard voices telling her to kill her son. The boy survived, but in prior cases of mothers compelled to kill by voices and visions, the children weren’t so lucky.
